I just Split my database through the wizzard on Access 2007. I need my assistant to be able to access this through a front-end database on her computer at her house.

What is the process of making this happen? Does it cost me money? Can I do it through Google docs? I do a lot through them for other business needs.

I have no idea what I'm doing, so any ideas would help.

Thanks!

Chris

The only simple approach for this is for your assistant to have a pc in your office that has the application front-end, and then to use something LogMeIn or GoToMypc  to connect to that pc using an internet connection.  I stress 'simple' and not necessarily 'ideal'.

You cannot run the front-end/back-end connection across the internet.

What about saving it on a "file server" over a network? Does that still have to be in one location?
