Split Database Back End On FTP Or Web Server

Jul 12, 2007

Hi, I am not sure where to put this thread hopefully someone here can help me.

I have spent a good deal of time developing a very effective access database for a client. It is split into a front end and back end and connected using the Linked Table Manager when necessary.

The front end is quite loaded with queries, reports, forms, macros etc and the back end simply has the tables.

The front end is about 15 mb and the back about 8 mb.

Current set up is a small workgroup network with about 4 -5 consecutive users at any one given time.

I am looking for some advice on how to set up or facilitate getting the backend on the internet so anyone with a front end can access it outside of the LAN.

Today I set up an account with WebDrive which can connect to and assign a drive letter on your pc to any FTP, HTTP site.

I made the connection with WebDrive and using the linked table manager successfully linked the tables on my local machine to the back end on the FTP server - and actually ran the database at a pretty good rate.

I noticed however that it was downloading the backend to my local pc and once I closed the (a) form it was uploading the data back to the server? Very slow and often threw errors.

This of course is not what I wanted. Has anyone heard of doing this? Any work arounds or setting params would be greatly appreciated.

I have been told to create the DB in ASP but I do not have any idea on how to do that whatsoever...

Any advice or insight would be awesome!

Moving Split Database Back End To Sql Server

Jan 8, 2015

So the database I have right now is split, with the back end on our server. Everything has been going great, however there are several second time delays when loading large forms, queries, etc. I've heard that moving the back end to an sql server is the way to go for speed.All forms and queries are on front end of database. Tables are located on the back end which is sitting on the server.

General :: Backup BACK-END Of A Split Database

Jan 24, 2014

I am trying to use VBA to backup the BACK-END of a split database (so I can automatically archive selected data). If I use FileCopy I get a message that the BACK-END database has not been found.Obviously I could 'unlink' the BACK-END, copy it and 're-link' it..Is it possible to copy the BACK-END tables(not just the links) into the FRONT-END and get at them that way?

General :: Split Database Access FE And SQL Server BE

Mar 4, 2014

I am currently working on an application where I am using MS access as my FE and working with linked tables to SQL server BE. I also have a few temp tables within Access that are not linked but needed.

1. What are my steps into making this into a SPLIT DB? I am assume the BE will have my linked tables from SQL and the FE will have my temp tables and forms. Is this correct?
2. Once I split it, then I can make an .ACCDE file for a Mulit User environment, is this correct?

What other steps should I be made aware of?

General :: Split Database - Prevent Linking To Back End

Jun 25, 2015

I have a split database. I have secured the mde sufficiently but I need to secure the back end so that no one could link to tables in it. If I introduce a password to the back end is this going to require those using front end to supply the password? If not then this could be good solution.

As the database is on the network drive, is there any other way to prevent people to link to the db? Can I hide the db in the network drive? Or should I hide tables in the BE. Should these still be available to be linked?

Split Database. Update Linked Tables If Back End Moved.

Dec 7, 2007


I'm about to move to a back end / front end system, from a single database file. Before I do so, I want to make sure I have all bases covered so to speak.

My back end file will reside on a server. I am aware that path names are sometimes changed by network administrators without warning.

From tests, I notice that, if the path to the back end can't be found, one cannot open the front end database file at all (Access 2003).

My question is: if my back end file gets moved, or the path changed, how can I get into my front end file to update the linked tables.

Many thanks in advance.

Running Back End On A Linux Server

May 12, 2006

Hi Guys,

I hope this isn't too stupid a question, but I have a db that needs to be accessed from several workstations. It is currently a split db, with the backend residing on one of the workstations in the workgroup. I was wondering if it possible (as I am looking at buying a server) to "house" the backend on a Linux machine? The main reason I ask is that Linux is <$100, but MS Server is >$1000. Does the server need to be able to run the program? If yes, is there any way around this?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Does File Server Hosting Back-end Mdb File Need To Have Access

Nov 15, 2013

I'm experimenting with MS Access, and I've successfully split an MDB someone created into two files. I can access the database from 2 computers at once using the front end file connecting to a file server which hosts the _be.mdb file.

Could the _be.mdb file theoretically be on a NAS without any computer attached, or is there some runtime or full version of Access that needs to run on the machine with the back end file?

Moving Database To Another Server

Dec 3, 2006


I have created a few split multiuser databases in Access 97 that my company has used over the past few years. Currently, we are trying to move everything to a new network server. When I did a simple copy and paste on Friday moving everything to the other server it seemed to work fine. Until I tried to open any of the databases. I kept getting the message that they all were read only.

Do I need to bring the database back together before transferring it? I also plan on converting the databases to Access 2003. What precautions should I take in doing this?

Thanks for any and all information you can pass along.

Sharing A Database Without A Server

Jun 12, 2012

At work a few of us all need to access the database to edit/update etc and at the moment only one of us can use it at once.We are getting a server in the near future so we will all be able to access it at the same time but I was wondering if there is an alternative way to do this in the meantime? I have been looking at "shared folders" but am unsure if they are suitable or how they work.
