Summary

It's important that you have a strategy before you begin the application development process. This chapter introduced many strategic issues, such as splitting a database into tables and other objects, and using Access as a front end. It also covered converting to a client/server environment, explored the benefits and costs involved in such a conversion, and discussed the different options available to you. The chapter tied these concepts together with an explanation of what you can do to prepare your applications for future growth.

Many people don't fully understand the Access runtime engine, so this chapter explained what it is and what it isn't. It also explained what you need to be concerned about when preparing an application for distribution, including the importance of properly securing your databases.
