OK, so I was all excited to use Microsoft Access and SharePoint together. I=
was gonna load data from Access to SharePoint lists and the users could do=
all their work on the SharePoint site with InfoPath forms. Then weird thin=
gs started happening as the data grew. Suddenly certain records would lock =
for no reason and never unlock. Access doesn't recognize "null" values in a=
SharePoint table so I can't have it update if isnull. Also, I have WAY mor=
e than 255 columns in the SharePoint table and Access can't handle it.

So I need to go another direction because these people want a web-based sys=
tem. Would a website built on Access be the way to go? What software would =
I need to do that? I have to be able to do this myself.

I'm very sad and frustrated.
