accessing remote access database

Hi to all,

When ever i need to add or delete something from the mdb file where I cant do it in my web site, i am downloading the mdb file, doing the modifications then uploading again.I want my code running on localhost to reach the mdb file on my web site and do any modifications.

I have tried to

replace the following code

string path = Request.MapPath(@"mydb.mdb")


string path = Request.MapPath(@"")

but i get the error "A virtual path is expected. "

Is there a way to reach a remotely hosted mdb file ?


Thanks in advance

short answer : No, use a real RDBMS if you want to do this sort of thing.

May I suggest Firebird, I use it for my personal site and like it very much.  MySql is fairly standard, but most people violate the license & fail to publish their source code when using the gpl version.  I've been told that PostgreSql is very Oracle like (im an Oracle whore), but their DataProvider is still not feature complete.  One nice thing is that most Opensource DataProviders seem to be implemented in pure C# as opposed to calling out to a dll.  this means that if you wanted to get 3rd party hosting of the DB & restrict access to just a few IPs, you wouldnt have to install the db client on the webserver, you could just plunk the Dataprovider dll into the bin directory. 

of course if you're willing to pay, there are also a number of excelent commerical RDBMS like Oracle, SqlServer etc.

Remote Access access
Hello, Currently new in the Web Matrix world and I'm a little lost. I'm looking for a way to connect to my remote Access database (ISP hosted) through the Workspace pane. I have an IP adress, even DNS, but I have no idea of how to formulate it to open my connection. I'm usually using FrontPage XP who includes a connection wizard. Thanks for any help ! You can only connect to Access databases that you have file access to. This means they must be either on your local computer, or on a computer share you have access to. One solution is to copy the MDB file to your local computer,...
