    Syncing A Website Form with Microsoft Access?

    I want to add a registration form to my website that is somehow synced with Microsoft Access 2010 so whenever a user fills out the form on my site, it sends/records the information to a specific Access database (I'm using the Call Tracker template at the moment).

    Is this possible? If so, what do I do?

    Thanks!

    Is your Access database located on, or accessable from, your webserver?

    The easiest way to do this is probably to use ASP.

    If you are using Access, you must be on a Windows server, where ASP runs.

    And the code used in ASP is VBScript, which is very close to the VBA used in Access coding.

    So it won't be a trivial task but neither will it be overwhelming to integrate your web pages with your Access DB via ASP.
