Viewing MS Access Reports Live in MS Sharepoint

I have a Sharepoint 2010 site and using MS Access 2007. I have an Access report that is generated by joining several Access table queries. I would like to keep all data entry and any editing through Access and use Sharepoint as a place to view the data from the Access tables. I would also like all report viewing in Sharepoint to be live views from the Access tables or reports.
To clarify, I am looking for a way to view Access reports in Sharepoint live. When data changes in Access and therefore the reports, from queries, I would like Sharepoint to show the most current and stay updated as the Access databases or reports change. I am not looking for a way to modify database tables through Sharepoint, just view the reports.

You must have Access to view Access reports. Sharepoint cannot "host" Access, so you cannot do what you want.

You can print the Access reports to PDF, upload them to your SP server, and let users browse them from there. I'm no SP expert so cannot tell you how to do that.

Or you can just share the data from the Access database, and give each user their own copy of the FE, and let them view the report on their desktop.
