ADP or MDB Front End

ADP or MDB Front End

ADP or MDB Front End

I'm upgrading our network to Small Business Server. At this moment in time we just use Access 97 as our database but as it's outgrowing, I'm upgrading to SQL Server Backend & Access 2000/2002 Front End. The problem is I don't know whether to use ADP or MDB front end. There will be a maximum of 15 people using the database through the Access front end & I was going to use ADP but I've read somewhere that this is only a single connection & I would have to link servers to enable other users?  Can you suggest the best way, bearing in mind I do have time constraints (6 weeks max).  Thanks in advance for your time.


RE: ADP or MDB Front End

I am not sure what was meant by a single connection. It may be because the ADP program was running off a network drive, but if each user has a copy of the app it should be no problem.
