I found an easy system for uploading searchable MS Access databases to the web - it's called Caspio Online ( However, I would rather not pay a monthly fee just to upload databases to our website. Does anyone know of an open source alternative that will allow me to upload a MS Access 2007 Database to a website, and then build a web form that will search it?

The easier the implementation, the better :)

Offhand, no. But you might be best advised to go with an open source database and some search web code.

Migrating from Access to MySQL is easy, and writing a php web form that can perform your custom search is pretty simple too. If you want a sql query window, then you can install webmin or phpMyAdmin which has a nice 'query by example' feature.
