Replicating a Database

Database replication is the process of converting your database to a new version, called a Design Master, and then creating replicas of that master database that can be distributed to different people, who can then edit the data. Each person working on the database must have his or her own replica.

When you create a replica with the Create Replica command, Access closes the database and creates a master and a replica (named Replica of <database>). You repeat this for every replica you want to create. The name of each replica is made unique by the addition of a number. After users have made changes to their replicas, the modified replicas are returned to you, and you use the other commands on the Replication submenu to synchronize the versions and resolve conflicts. For more information on this process, search on replication in Access online Help.
