Storing Back End on a Terminal Server


T

Trini Gal

Hello,

I'm almost done with the database I created for approximately 5 users using
Access 2007 and verified that all the users have been upgraded to 2007. I
intend to split the database, store the back end on a Terminal Server which
is running 2003 and distribute the front end to my users.

My question is, will the database run fine or does the Terminal Server need
to be upgraded to 2007?

Thanks in advance for your time.

Storing the backend database file on a terminal server is a bit
unusual as most foiks would put the BE on a file server.

That said neither the Terminal Server, if being used as a file server,
or a file server needs to have Access installed on it.

However if you want to run the Access FE from the Terminal Server then
the access will nee to be installed on it. The runtime will suffice
if you've purchased the A2003 runtime.

Although I should've added that you can also run an A2003 MDE in the free A2007
runtime. You will probably want to disable the ribbon though which can easily be
done.

I want my database created in A2003 (or before) display my own menubar only.
