Sharepoint & Web Access Database

Hello-

I am trying to create a web access database. I tried in SharePoint 2010 by going to create list---> assets tracking web database.

I receive a page saying

"Preparing a site...

Someone has recently made changes to this site and the site is being updated. If the site remains offline for an extended period of time, contact a site owner. "

Do I need to setup anything? Under settings it says access services is enabled....

Are you doing this from Access? Generally that's how you would go about creating a web database. Open Access, click New on the File tab, and then select a Template, and then publish that to the web.

See this article: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/access-help/build-an-access-database-to-share-on-the-web-HA010356866.aspx

Before you invest a lot of time in this application you should consider upgrading to A2013 and the latest version of SharePoint.  Access web apps for A2013 are completely different from earlier versions and there is no upgrade path.  Once you upgrade to A2013 and the latest version of SharePoint your BE will be SQL Azure rather than SharePoint lists which is also a good thing.
