I have a runtime access .MDB application on a server and I want to access all records from two seperate workstations. How do I setup the workstations to access the .MDB file on the server?
Watch Question

The way I have done it in the past is to put the tables into their own MDB. Then place this MDB containing the tables on the server. Then put the MDB with the queries, forms, reports, etc on each client workstation and attach to the tables on the server MDB through a mapped drive. Also remember when you open the MDB on the server to use it in shared mode not exclusive.
