Decided: Access, SharePoint, or ASP?
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Facebook Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on Google Plus Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost

Based on the poll results, and the MOUNTAINS of feedback I've received (which I really loved!) I've made a decision on the Seminar. I'm going to go with a web-based database using Access on the back-end and ASP as the front-end. The final results were 65% in favor of ASP and 18% with Sharepoint - and over a THOUSAND of you voted. Thanks! I really appreciate your feedback.

Watch the video below for my super-long-winded, drawn-out explanation of how I made this decision, and what some of the differences between ASP and SharePoint are...

ASP still preferred Comment from Gioia H @ 2/21/2018
I'm wondering if you have any recent thoughts on this? I'm looking to publish some pages internally that link/get their information from our access database. Then i want to run my custom page on a TV Monitor. The data will only be displayed. What would you recommend in 2018?

Reply from Alex Hedley:

ASP would work fine, if you have an IIS server you can serve them from.
You could use a HTA.
Is the TV connected to a computer and shows the Desktop?

Decided Access SharePoint or ASP Comment from Francois M @ 8/29/2012
Hi Rick, when do you think this seminar will be available, I am, busy with a Project tracking and evaluation system. As projects are entered via the web , it must be aproved thn allocated to the database. Email notifcations is important etc. I must now decide ifwe are going to use sharepoint or just develop ASP pages. I am really looking forward to this seminar to help me with ideas and to decide what would be the best route of development. The plan is a role out to 54 municipalities via web for project registration and entrie and then 10 people via Access Front-end with dash board to evaluate project progress , budget allocation etc. I really enjoyed your couses and larned a lot. Thx Francois Marais

I don't have a timeline on the Sharepoint seminar. I just lost a couple of days due to having to move the web server, so I'm even more behind scheduled than planned. I still need to work on the Searching Seminar and Access 7 this week. If you need to build an online solution, I do cover how to do this using ASP and Access in two other seminars: Web Database Seminar and the Access Synch Seminar. Both show you how to set up a web-based database using Access and ASP. Sharepoint is good for small team collaboration, but I don't know if I'm sold on it yet for larger projects or public web databases.
