multi-user ACCESS environment

How can I make sure the user has the most up to date front end ? by Chance1234
Posted: 2 Dec 04

create a batch file with the follwing

COPY \\serverwherefrontendexits\dbyouwanttocopy.mdb C:\whereyouwantthedbtobeonusermachines\dbyouwanttocopy.mdb
START "MSAccess.exe" C:\C:\whereyouwantthedbtobeonusermachines\dbyouwanttocopy.mdb

Place a shortcut to the batch file on the user machines, when they click, this will copy the front end from the server to there machine and start the database.

This is a quick and dirty method ok for a small enviroment say 8 - 10 users. Anymore and you might run into problems in regards to network traffic
