WEB publish ms/access 2013

I have a small ms/access database with a simple form and the ability to upload a PDF file.
Is it possible and how to make it available through a web browser?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It is possible, but it may not be as "simple" as you like.

Since you cannot "convert" an existing Access database to a web database, you must create a new web database from scratch.
You may be able to import the tables, but I am not sure about the other objects.
Then you must learn how to do everything you are doing in your existing database, in a "web" database.
(For example you cannot use VBA in most cases, ...you must use "Macros")
Also most all aspects of a web database are different from what you may be used to in a standard Access db.

If you want "easy", check out his:

The more complex route would be to investigate SharePoint/Office 365

Thanks a lot. I reckon I do need to forget about it. The cost for eqldata is prohibitive and going after sharepoint is a totally new environment to learn...

thanks anyway

yes, that is the opinion of most...

We all wished that MS would have made transitioning to the web easier...
