Access database(Jet Engine) and SQL Server or SQL Server express
I am trying to find out what are the big differences between access

applications (same content different copies) running as different
sites(on IIS), each site using an access as a back-end database, all
sites will be running simultaneously, all the access databases are on
the same machine, on this approach, does each copy of access has its
own Jet engine to handle database transaction or only has one Jet
engine with multiple threads handles multiple copies of access

Would it be possible to migrate the MS Access 2000 to MS SQL Server
My application is using MS Access 2000 as database and as user
interface such as forms. Now, I want to migrate the backend database
from MS Access 2000 to MS SQL Server 2000. However, I want to keep the
MS Access 2000 interface. Would it be possible?
If I migrate the MS Access to SQL Server, would the queries, back-end
VBA, macro, tables and forms be affected? Do I need to change the MS
Access data type to SQL server supported data type?
Which tool I can use to do the migration? Upsizing wizard or exporting...Loads of errors when querying MS SQL Server Express 2005 from Access 2007

I think you're going to have to expand a little bit more in your question
here, as is not 100% quite clear what you're trying to do.
You might want to make a little bit of a distinction between MS access, the
development system that allows you to write code, build forms, and build
reports, and that of the database engine that you choose to use with MS
access. When you build an application MS access, you then choose your
database engine, that might be oracle, SQL server, or perhaps more often
leave the default jet database.
So when you say make a client access application, are you talking about a
piece of software that you plan to install and each computer? The fact that
your introducing the issue of java further complicates your question.
Perhaps your question is simply you have some java code running on a server,
and with to open a mdb file (an access database file). In this situation
you're not really using MS access at all here (you using what is called the
jet database engine to read that mdb file). For all the trouble in this type

I have a very frustrating problem. I have a situation that works fine
on some computers, but not on others. I have SQL Server Express 2005
and Access 2003 loaded on 4 computers. I have set up a "Linked
Server" in SQL Server linked to my Access database. I am running
queries on t-SQL against the Access tables through the linked server.
On all of the computers, I can do select queries and they all work
great but what I need to do is run Update, Insert, Delete queries as
well. On a couple of the computers, it works fine, locally and across
the LAN, and a VPN as far as that goes. But on other computers I can
do Select queries (also across the network) but no update queries. I

The technical support guys at my company have set up my system so that
the server containing the MS Access database is on one server, while
the pages that should access the database are on another server.
When the pages and database are on the same server, I usually just
connect through ODBC.
The problem is that I don't know how to set up an ODBC connection to
link from one server to a database in another.
Anyone know what I am getting at and know of a possible solution, or a
link to a site which may help.

I'm having a system using Access 2000 as both front-end (queries,
forms, reports & temp tables for reports) & back-end (data) with
back-end running on the server. The application runs on the network
with around 15 users.
The back-end database is suffering from performance issues. There were
several corruptions since few months & one major corruption & corrupted
the MSysObjects table. Also, the system will run batch process that
generate hundreds to thousands of records in the transaction table,
which caused the transaction table being locked even though users just
trying to add new transactions even though the database has been
selected to use record-level locking. Furthermore, some queries are
very slow as they query the transaction table which has over 1.3

hundreds of records?

what we need.
My conclusion has been that Access 2003 has trouble connecting to SQL

sounds like both should connect. Is it just the method I am using that

is there another way?
I went back to the machine with SQL 2005 and created a small DB using
SQL Client. I started the wizard and this time using the 'use an

Is Access 2003 compatible with SQL Server 2005 Express and if so, I
think I need some help about how to do it.

Yes, but I don't think you can use the Copy Database Wizard, but you will
have to do it by hand. Which is not very difficult anyway.
On source machine backup database, and make note of the logical
