Looking to Share your Microsoft Access Database online with other users?

Use our Windows Remote Desktop Servers to share your MS Access Database online with others. Quick/easy setup.

Be up and running in a few hours! With our MS Access hosted remote desktop servers each user has their own desktop and each can open the "front-end" MS Access Application to view/edit the data/tables in a shared "back-end" file. No code changes required except to split your database.

How to install your MS Access Application Database to share online on a Windows Remote Desktop Server is a simple and quick process:
  • Split your database if you have not already (You will now have 2 folders). This process enables MS Access to alert a user if the record they are changing has already been updated so they can reload it before editing and saving it (if your MS Access database is developed for multiple users). To split your database, use the Database Splitter wizard as described here: Split an Access Database.
  • Copy the 2 folders to the remote desktop server (Copy them to a folder under C:\Users\Public or another location that all users can access which should not be the protected root c: directory)
  • Now open Access by clicking on the front-end file you just copied to the server
  • You will see an error because the tables are in a new location - Click on "External Data" and --> "Linked Table Manager" select all tables and browse to the new folder location C:\Users\Public\....
That is it! You now have an Microsoft Access database each of your users can share and access online via a Windows remote desktop by clicking on the access front-end file. You no longer have to worry about hardware failure or capital investments in servers, and performance/speed is great because both the front-end and back-end are running on the same server without any network latency.

**If you place your database files in a folder not under the "Public" folder you will need to change the permissions on the folders to enable all users to have the rights to execute your MS Access application/database.

Setting up a Windows Remote Desktop server to share a Microsoft Access Database online is the easiest and quickest method. You can be setup in a few hours. No code changes required.

Host your Microsoft Access Database Online in the Cloud for multi-users

You can easily move your Access 2021, Access 2019 and Access 2016 database to a cloud desktop (Remote Desktop Hosting).  Your Access Database can then be run from most any tablet or computer including windows computers which have the Remote Desktop Client (RDP) or on an Apple IOS computer by installing the remote desktop client. 

With Riptide's Windows Remote Desktop Servers your MS Access database is hosted on a dedicated Windows Server environment that you control and not on a sharepoint deployment. You can also install other applications such as Microsoft Office and Accounting Software as well as store and share company documents on our Remote Desktop Servers.

Riptide provides a full Windows RDS/Terminal Server for hosting your MS Access application in the cloud (rather than a Sharepoint hosted option).  Both your front-end and back-end Microsoft Access Application are online on the same remote server which provides great application performance and speed for your users.

Install your MS Access application One Time for all users to have access online.

You only install your Microsoft Access Database once on the server for all of the users on the server.  This simplifies adding a new employee or user who needs to access the database as well as upgrading the access database since it is only installed once on the hosted server.

Install and run other programs in addition to your Access Database (included)

We offer you more than just Microsoft Access online. In addition to MS Access you can also save files and install other programs you would like to host online in the cloud.  This makes it very convenient to access your programs from any computer, share files, print to a local printer.  When you host your Microsoft Access Database online you can easily work from home or any place where you have an internet connection. You laptop or tablet give you full access to all the programs and files you have loaded on the remote desktop server.

Best Performance for your Microsoft Access Database with Desktop Hosting

Access 2021, Microsoft Access 2019, MS Access 2016 will all run on Remote Desktop Hosting Servers (formerly called Terminal Servers) giving you access anytime you are online.  Running your access front end and backend database online makes for a very fast and responsive user experience.  This is because the data doesn't move between the server and your computer, only the pixels for your screen.  Running the backend and front end on the same server also means you only install the front end GUI one time.
