What would be the best language to use if I want to create a web interface for an Access DB? Security will be important, and users will need to make electronic certifications and have graduated levels of accessibility to the database and database output files.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You can make it in just about anything you are comfortable with. ASP, C#, VB.NET all come to mind right off the bat.

    Are you sure you want to spend money developing a front end for a backend database that might not scale very well? I've had several clients with Access DBs for their Web applications and have heard more moans and grunts than positive comments.

    I've been somewhat concerned about continuing to use Access as the database. However, I believe that the number of online users at any one point in time will not exceed say 5-10. Also, if necessary, I think the project could set up two or more Access databases to split the load and reduce "Access jams" and slowdowns. I'm all too familiar from previous experience with the problem of multiple users trying to use the same Access database at the same time. The project is intended to record data regarding affordable housing projects at two stages: pre-development and when placed in service. There are also data lookups and calculations involved. So, I think potentially we could have 3 separate databases: one with the lookups and calculations, one to hold the pre-development data and one to hold the placed-in-service data. Do you think I'm being delusional or overly optimistic?

    Sounds like you might want to move up to SQL Express from Access as Access may not be powerful enough for your project.
