I have been looking for some time on a way to do this I have an application that will be running on a network with a centralized Access DB (this is done to alleviate the need for the user having to install anything specific for a database such as Oracle)  the best way I can tell to accomplish this is when installing the application on the "Server" computer to share out a folder and on the "Client" computers to point to that shared folder and the DB.  My question is, Is there a better way of getting data from an access database or is there another database application I can use that does not require the user doing anything.  I need the application to be very easy to install and get started as my customers are not the most computer literate people.
