Working with Windows SharePoint Services and Access

Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) is a workgroup portal server that uses Internet Information Services 6.0 to manage and display content and MSDE or SQL Server 2000 as its data store. WSS is intended for sharing documents, lists, InfoPath forms, Web pages, and images among portal users. WSS also offers newsgroup-style discussion boards, instant messaging, and survey features. Unlike its more powerful relative, SharePoint Portal Server, WSS doesn’t require client licenses for users.

WSS is an add-in to Windows Server 2003 that you access with IE 5.0+. (Using browsers other than IE 5.0+ results in reduced functionality.) The examples of the following sections require that you have access to a WSS site on a local development computer, your organization’s intranet, or from a third-party WSS hosting facility. You also need administrative privileges for the site. Limited experience administering a WSS site is helpful but not required.
