The problem with using access for you database access remotely. Is that
every time it runs a query it has to pull a copy of the table down local so
as to work with it. I would suggest using sql as everything is done on the
server side and only the records required are returned.

I have also access 2000 now has the sql server engine built into it. It may
be worth while giving it a go
