Antrow Software Explains The Benefits Of Using A Microsoft MS-Access To Website Database Conversion Service 18 January 2017 Antrow Software Explains The Benefits Of Using A Microsoft MS-Access To Website Database Conversion Service

Antrow Software who provide a Microsoft MS-Access to Website database conversion service has launched a campaign to explain the importance of using their service and how it can benefit businesses in the USA, the UK, and around the world. The MS-Access experts (www.antrow.com/products/products.aspx) who have become leaders in their field by offering a cost effective migration of up to 70% faster than other services has found that there is a misunderstanding of how important converting Microsoft Access database to the Web is According to the conversion experts, many businesses due to their lack of misunderstanding jump the gun when it comes to their Access database becoming too large and outgrowing its original purpose. Instead of looking at more affordable measures, they hire expensive IT consultants and developers to build them new hardware and bigger databases. The more cost effective way of dealing with an outgrown database and a faster method is by turning that Access application into a Web-based application.

A spokesman for Antrow Software said: “What you will receive from us is a modern website with the same functionality as your current MS-Access database, the only difference !! it is online and can be used anywhere on any device.”

There are many benefits of using A Microsoft MS-Access To Website Database Conversion
Service, which includes:


1. Cost. Hiring developers and IT consultants can be very expensive and time-consuming.
By using the conversion service it’s not only quicker and avoids spending time meeting
different companies to undertake the work, but it's also much more affordable.


2. Easy To Use. Not everyone is an IT expert, and not everyone is trained to use
complicated systems. By using the conversion service, it avoids paying for training as well of
limiting which personnel can and cannot use the application.

3. Access Data from Anywhere: It is important to be able to access data no matter where
the user maybe. By having the database online, it means it is accessible from anywhere in the
world.


4. Hosted locally. By converting an existing database, it can be hosted in the Cloud or a
local network.


There are many good reasons to use the conversion service, for more details of all the
benefits, please visit http://www.antrow.com/products/products.aspx

“You can add, edit and delete data from anywhere in the world. the only thing you need is an
internet connection. We have converted over 500 MS-Access databases to the web, with our
long time experience and our own developed conversion tools (Anrow .Net MS-Access
webform usercontrols™) we ensure a fast and cost effective migration up to 70% faster than
our competitors.”

10 reasons to turn your Access applications into Web-based applications 22 November 2016 10 reasons to turn your Access applications into Web-based applications

When an Access database outgrows its original purpose, you face applying band-aid technology or upgrading to a more powerful database system. But before you toss Access out the window and start signing purchase orders for consultants, developers, licensing, and new hardware, consider one more option -- turning your Access application into a Web-based application. Here are a few reasons why this might make sense.

An Access database often outgrows its original purpose. When that happens, you face applying band-aid technology or upgrading to a more powerful database system, such as SQL Server Express or even SQL Server. But before you toss Access out the window and start signing purchase orders for consultants, developers, licensing, and new hardware, consider one more option — turning your Access application into a Web-based application. Let's look at some reasons why this might make sense.


#1: Client versus server
A server-side database, such as MySQL, SQL Server, and Oracle, evaluates requests on the server side (sent in the form of a SQL statement) and then returns data to the client. Jet, on the other hand, lets the client do all the work. Jet is the database engine behind Access. Even if the database (.mdb) is on a network server, the client still does all the work. The server simply responds to client file requests.

This arrangement retrieves more then just the data across the network. As a result, indexes and unused data clog the network and slow things down. An alternative is to place the Access database on your Web server's local drive and then build the interface on the Web server. Doing so creates an ad hoc server-side database that handles transactions on the server (using your code). Requests from the client are in Hyper Text Transfer Protocol (HTTP) format instead of SQL.

#2: No client installation
A Web-based front end minimizes installation issues. Users need only a browser. The database doesn't care whether the user is sending requests via a Windows PC, a Mac, or a machine running Linux.

#3: Easy cross-platform usage
You're free to use your language of choice to create the Web interface and the code that the server users to interact with the database. Users get clean and standard HTML that almost all browsers can use.

#4: Simplified security
Storing the database in a non-shared folder (see #1) restricts access. Only the Web server's administrator has access to the database file. That leaves security to the Web server. Now, you might argue either way as to whether this method is more or less secure than a server-side database. However, someone with direct access to a machine with a server-side database could probably also gain direct access to that database.

In addition, a server-side database requires a network connection. An Access database on a Web server isn't directly available. You can access the Web server, but not the database. Only the Web server can access the database on the server's local drive. On the other hand, Access has a security system known as Access User Level security (this isn't available with Access 2007). Most server-side database security systems are more secure than Access User Level security.

#5: Easy use of NT authentication
Using Visual Basic for Applications (VBA), you can determine the NT name of users logged into an Access database and thereby restrict which users can do what. However, this method isn't foolproof, and it doesn't truly authenticate users. Your Web interface (on an IIS Web server) can use Integrated Windows Security to authenticate user credentials to individual web pages.

#6: Goodbye to corruption!
Most developers complain that Access is susceptible to corruption. Used incorrectly, it certainly is. With an Uninterruptible Power Source (UPS) and redundant drives, your Web-based database (.mdb file) won't suffer from corruption.

#7: No version problems
With the quick pace of upgrades, many of us have users spread across two and three versions of Access. Unfortunately, not all versions play well together. A Web interface eliminates version incompatibility issues because the Web server uses Jet. That means the Web server doesn't even need Access — it doesn't load Access. Your Web server doesn't care what version of Access the client uses.

#8: Live, behind-the-scenes interface updates
To update an Access front end, you must copy or modify an .mdb file. Access won't let you make changes while people are using it. (Beginning with Access 2000, you can make some changes, but a few still require exclusive access to the database.) In contrast, you can change the Web interface files (.asp, .aspx, and so on) whenever you like. The changes are almost immediate.

#9: Portability
Every Windows OS since Windows XP has had personal Web server capabilities. That means you can develop and test a Web site using a laptop running Windows 98 (or later). Using an Access database as the data source has a few benefits:

There's no need to install and run a heavy-duty server-side database on your laptop.

There's no need to maintain a network connection to a live server.

You can copy the live system and its database as just a bunch of files. You don't have to import, export, or attach database files. For example, you can build a Web site on your laptop or desktop and then move it to a Web server. To work on an update, simply copy the Access database file (.mdb) from the Web server to your laptop.
Recommendation: Jet allows many transaction type SQL statements. You can build and modify tables and views using SQL, along with the typical data reading and altering capabilities. Sometimes, if you put a system on a remote server where you no longer have the ability to get to the actual .mdb, it's pretty simple to whip up an .asp page that lets you run SQL on the fly against the database.

#10: More users
By their very nature, Web interfaces are unbound. In other words, once a page is loaded, the interface is no longer connected to the database. But a bound Access front end maintains a connection to the source, and Jet limits you to 255 concurrent connections. Your Web application, unless you have 255 users hitting the database at the exact same moment (which would require approximately 30,000 users a minute at a transactions speed of .5 seconds) can have more concurrent users.

Mirgrate an Access database to share on the Web with Antrow Software MS-Access web controls 21 November 2016 Mirgrate an Access database to share on the Web with Antrow Software MS-Access web controls

Applies To: Access 2010, Access 2011, Access 2012, Access 2013, Access 2014, Access 2015, Access 2016

You can use new components of Antrow Software MS-Access web controls to build or convert database to web applications.

This helps you:
Secure and manage access to your data
Share data throughout an organization, or over the Internet
Note: A user account is required to use a web database. Anonymous access is not supported.

Overview
Antrow Software MS-Access web controls provide a platform for you to create or migrate databases that you can use on the Web.
You design and publish a web database by using the Antrow Web controls, and people who have database accounts use the web database in a web browser.

How it works
When you publish a web database, Antrow creates a internet site that contains the database. All of the database objects and data move to internet lists in that site.

After you publish, Internet/Intranet visitors can use your database, based on their permissions for the website.
Full Control: This lets you make data and design changes.
Contribute: This lets you make data changes, but not design changes.
Read: This lets you read data, but you can't change anything.

Forms and reports run in the browser
Forms, reports, and most macros run inside the browser. This lets your website refresh data on the screen without having to redo the whole page.
You can create a form to help people navigate your application. A new control, the Antrow Software MS-Access web Navigation control, makes it easy to add standard Web-style navigation buttons to a webform for this purpose.

Queries and data macros run on the server
All SQL database processing happens on the server. This helps improve network performance by limiting traffic to result sets.

Intranet or Internet
You can publish to your own intranet server, or to the Internet. Antrow, Microsoft, Google and Amazon is offering an Internet-facing, hosted solution.
