Converting your Access 2003 into Access 2010 would not automatically become a web database.

The best approach would be to start creating new web access forms using Access 2010. This is not a quick process however, once completed the feeling is great.

You can still use other objects in your access 2003 like tables and queries but you need to be aware that some of your VBA codes need debugging.

There's nothing in Access 2010 which will convert your database to a web database.

You have to build it from scratch (or pay a conversion company to do it) .
You need to be aware that there are loads of features which cannot be transformed to a web database so this is NOT a way to reproduce standard Access functionality in a web application.

  The other option you have is running the app on a terminal services server with Citrix Access Essentials on top of that.

  This lets a remote user run your app within a web browser without any changes in your app.
