- This is a project book that guides you through the process of building a traditional Access desktop database that uses one Access database as the front-end (queries, reports, and forms) and another Access database that contains all the tables and data. By separating the data from the rest of the database, the Access database can be easily shared by multiple users over a network. When you build a database the correctly at the outset, later this database can be migrated to another system with fewer issues and fewer objects that need to be redone.
