Summary

Many people think that the transition of a simple Access application to a multiuser or client/server environment is a simple one. I strongly disagree. There are several things to think about when moving an application from a single-user environment to a multiuser environment, and even more things to think about when moving to a client/server environment. The more you think about these potential evolutions when you first design and build your application, the fewer problems you'll have if your application data has to be upsized.

This chapter exposed you to multiuser techniques. It explained client/server technology and when you need it. It also talked about the various roles that Access plays in the application design model. Finally, you learned about two techniques that are important within an enterprise application: transaction processing and replication.
