    Question SQL Server Access on a MAC

    I have a major issue in that I have developed a pretty large site using ASP and SQL Server. The SQL server contains thousands of business entries that my boss wants to be able to update. This is VERY easy using a PC.

    However, heres the issue. He will not use anything but a MAC. Getting him to use a PC is a major nightmare. Is there any way that I can give him access to the database using a mac?

    I currently use MS Access Forms to create neat interfaces for the SQL server so if I could do something like this on a mac it would be fantastic.

    I hope someone out there can help me out here, im really stumped!

    Well, the only things I can think of are:
    1. Create a web application that simulates what you're doing with MS Access forms (not sure if this is feasible or really that secure)
    2. Buy something for MAC eg. http://www.macosguru.de/index.php?adwordsid=3

    Trick is the terminal server. It could be the local SQL server. Another option, though not exactly kosher, is to use an XP Pro box with remote support enabled. Probably the easiest way.
