Can You give more detail about terminal services session? Do I need some kind of software for this?
What is more faster, efficient and reliable, using terminal services or online application from a browser?
In what format should the back end be (.accde or .accdb)?
Can I split and link two database pieces on my machine and then copy it on users machine or do I need to do the linking on users machine (I'm asking because of the path of the link)?
How do I configure package installer when I'm installing a split database? (Do I put front end as the database and the back end as additional files) Should I avoid package installer when dealing with split database, why?
Should I enable Compact on close option on back end database?
I think I noticed that the front size is getting bigger after some work. Did i noticed right, and why is this happening? Shouldn't only the back end get big because that's where the data goes?
