What version of Access?  I don't know understand what the problem is.  This is already built into Access.  

You just have to
1. select the object,
2. then under External Data, in the Export group, select SharePoint list
3. Specify the url for where the list should go (make sure you have permission)
4. Click OK

Is this not working?

Its both Access 2007 and 2010 database.I already have 12 reports and 5 Forms in access database and i need to migrate them to Sharepoint list. Can i have those reports and forms in sharepoint list too. If i just follow these steps
1.select the object,
2. then under External Data, in the Export group, select SharePoint list
3. Specify the url for where the list should go (make sure you have permission)
4. Click OK

Will it do the job of migrating both reports and forms of access database to sharepoint list.If so will reports are available as Views in Sharepoint list?

I think this has explained the problem.

Are you saying that you want to run reports and enter information from Sharepoint?

No, no way that I am aware of.  

SharePoint uses a web front end, but I don't know of any tools that allow you to customize it into being an Access front end.  Although, the inverse is true.  You can export your tables to sharepoint lists and have access use them as linked tables.

If you want to create a web front end, you will have to build it.

However, I think the simplest solution is to make sure that your users have permission to the share where the database is located and just provide a link.  If you give them an Access runtime you don't even need to have a full version of Access.
