Hi, at work I have developed a relational database and done take-on into MS Access. The idea was originally that this would be a prototype that would eventually be ported to MS SQL, because a client / server setup and is needed due to geographically dispersed users, and because access control must be set up on a per-table basis ... things I believe are not possible in MS Access.

However, I read snippets suggesting that MS Access might be used in Sharepoint in a manner that facilitates geographically dispersed users - could you please advise?

I would also like to know whether read-only access on MS Access is available free of charge, on a similar basis as Adobe Reader?
