Best way to build web pages on IIS Server 7 with Access backend

Hi

I am an VB.net/Access decveloper. I have been given the task of building a web site that manipulates the queries and tables of an Access database sitting on the sever. My initial direction was to just use a ASP.net Web application project. Is this even the correct way to go?
Is there a better wat?

Thanks

There is no "Right" or "Wrong" way...

Use whatever platform suits your needs...

Just note that when you say "Web Page" and "MS Access Back end", that you will be limited by the same constrains that you have on the desktop.
2GB size limit
Limited "Concurrency"
Minimal security.
...etc

Also note that a lot of platforms will not recognize many of the "Access only" datatypes
(Hyperlinks, OLE, Lookup, Multivalue, ...etc)

Thanks. My client uses Access extensively and they want users to be able to enter data and drill down to data via webpages

Webpages translates to ASP.NET given that you are vb.net programmer. You can go the MVC root but I would recommend webforms.
