    Hi guys,

    I built a small database in Access which is now on our server with a number of people using it.

    How do I, working with a copy, upload my changes to the active database?

    So if I just change a form for instance?

    Many thanks....

    Well you will probably need the users to exit the database or do it when they have all gone home or before they start.
    Then you upload your change(s) and then replace the item in question, you can if you want delete the original item first before uploading if you want.
    It is possible to use VBA to "force" the users out of the database.
