Is it possible to import data into my Access database directly from a SQL database that I have hosted on an ASP.net 4 site of mine?

If the hosting company provides remote access to the SQL server then you can link to the tables from Access via ODBC.

I would recommend contacting the hosting provider for instructions for the servers.. Severy prodiver can have it set up different.

Would you mind sharing a link to the hosting provider you are using?

I normally go to the control panel and create an ODBC connection for an SQL server using the information for the hosting provider's server.

Are you currently using MS Enterprise Manager on your PC to remote manage your database?

From an Access database there is no code required. You simple create linked tables to the ODBC data source.
