Access XP Databases in Multi-User Environment

  Air_Man 10:06 03 May 2004

I have written an Access XP database to log incoming calls to our techincal support team and am now ready to deploy it. We have a team of four who will use it, each running Win XP and Access XP. I plan to split the database into an mde and mdb front & back end but I don't really know much about how it will behave in a multi-user environment (both files will be stored on a shared network drive).

Any advice on things like "locking", refresh details and the like would be most welcomed.

Also, is there any way I can ether provide a button on the fronted to, or set it to automatically, backup (create a copy of ) the backend?

Thx in advance.
