I have developed a small data base via access 2010 and now I would like to publish reports and also collect data online .
As far as I know there are several built-in options like World mail-merge , or collecting data via E-mail and also via the Sharepoint features which non of theme suites me .( However sharepoint is very complete, the sharepoint hosting services are very expensive )
I am looking for a solution which satisfies the following needs.
1-Publishing Reports, Queries, Tables created in access with the template designed in access.
2-Collecting Data via forms with template designed in access.
If this is not possible the following might also help :
1- Using Access database locally between 3 or 4 PCs.
2- Running the sharepoint on a Virtual machine and gain profit from the access data base.
Any lead or link would help.
