Chapter 24. Securing Multiuser Network A... > Networking Access Applications

Networking Access Applications

Access 97 is likely to be the first networked Windows application many of you will use. Windows 95's simple installation of low-cost and easy-to-administer Windows Networking should appeal to first-time network users. If you don't have a network now and plan to create Access applications for other users to share, Windows 95's built-in network operating system is a logical choice as a peer-to-peer "starter" network. A peer-to-peer network is one in which any PC connected to the network can share files in all—or designated—folders with any other PC connected to the network. PCs connected by peer-to-peer networks often are called workgroup members. Access applications that share .mdb files on a network are termed multiuser applications.

Microsoft designed Access specifically for multiuser operation in a networked, workgroup environment. For example, Microsoft added a very sophisticated security system to Access designed for multiuser applications. If your network is already set up, you can choose to install Access on the network or install only the .mdb files you intend to share. (Sharing only .mdb files is the most practical approach.)
