Access backend on SharePoint library
Posted on 2015-02-11
I have a need to host Access backend databases on a SharePoint library. Due to the particular server restrictions I have - I cannot host the access data directly in a sharepoint list - I cannot host it on a shared drive - the ONLY way I have to share files is via a SharePoint library and I can't use Access Web services on this particular server. I tried to link to an Access backend from my frontend via table linkage but there doesn't appear to be a way to link to it. I looked into using WEBDAV services to assign a shared drive letter to the SharePoint library but that is not enabled on my windows configuration. I have virtually no way to get Access web services turned on and once again, i cannot just upload the data from Access into a SharePoint list (which is what I would do if I could).
ANY ideas on this? thanks so much
