Okay, I’m confused. I just read a blog about using Microsoft Access as the database back-end for a website. I think. Well, heck, I’m not sure. Is she saying you should convert to a true client/server database model or you should use Access itself as the database back-end?
To be honest, I think there is little value in Microsoft Access outside of its insanely easy development front-end for programmers. That’s why Access is popular: It is very easy to create a database application from scratch using Access. Even with web programming languages such as PHP you have a steeper learning curve, especially since you need to setup Apache, PHP, and MySQL (well, those are usually running on a Linux server these days anyway, although that of course brings up an obvious security issue).
