Sharing Your Access Database Online with Microsoft SharePoint

 S  M  L  XL  FS  |  Slo  Reg  Fast  2x  |  Bookmark Buy Now


I get asked all the time: "How can I share my Microsoft Access database with others online?" This seminar covers sharing your Microsoft Access database online using SharePoint. If you've got a small team and a small database, then a SharePoint solution might be right for you.


Topics Covered

  • What SharePoint is good for
  • What it's NOT good for
  • What YOU will need to get started
  • What your USERS will need
  • How to set up a SharePoint Site
  • Creating a SharePoint List (Table)
  • Sharing Your List and Setting up Permissions
  • Connecting Your Access DB to SharePoint
  • Linking to SharePoint Lists
  • Publishing Access Tables to SharePoint
  • Distributing Your Database to Other Users
  • How Non-Access Users can View/Edit Data

In Lesson 1, you will learn what SharePoint is good for, what it's NOT good for, and what both you and your users will need to get started using a SharePoint Access solution.

In Lesson 2, you will learn how to create your first SharePoint Site, how to create a new List (analogous to an Access Table), and how to enter and edit data using the SharePoint web interface.

In Lesson 3, you will learn how to connect Access to your SharePoint Site, how to log in, export your CustomerT table to a SharePoint List, and then link to that list form your database.

In Lesson 4, you will learn about permissions in SharePoint, how to distribute your database, giving other users access to your SharePoint List, sending email invites, and distributing an ACCDE encrypted Access file.

In Lesson 5, you will learn to see what user modified records in your database, the hidden table fields, and how to remove and change permissions.

Access Not Editing SharePoint Upload Images   Link  
Guillermo Baltazar

Hello! I split an Access Database where the back-end is a SharePoint List. The Access Front-end Form has a feature to locate a previously entered record and display the contents in the form. When I try to edit the contents of the form and then save / close, I receive the following message, Cannot update. Database or object is read-only.. What can I do to allow the SharePoint List to be updated? Read More...

Can you edit it directly in the Table?

Yes, it can be edited directly on the List in SharePoint. I want users to edit on the form itself. That way users can do everything they need to do by using the Access Front-End.

When I import my access tables to a SharePoint list, duplicate tables get created if multiple tables are related to a specific table. Is there any way to prevent that?

I've never seen that happen before. If this is just a one-time thing, I'd suggest just delete the duplicate tables and move on. :)

Hi Richard! Is it possible to use sharePoint via Mac computer? Just to read only no updates

Larisa, SharePoint is a website, it can be viewed on any computer that has a web browser, windows/linux/Mac

Now Access doesnt work on the Mac so you wouldnt be able to connect to it that way.

Well, SharePoint is a web service that runs in your browser. I don't have a Mac, so I can't say for sure, but I don't know why it wouldn't. This is a question for my resident Mac expert, Alex.
