You may register remote SQL database on AS/400 using ADDRDBDIRE command.
It supports so-called "Application requester driver" - a program, which
will be handed SQL request, and it is up to it this program how to process
it. Interface to "Application requester driver" is published and open.
You may write your own "Application requester driver" to implement
interface to Access database on PC, if you wish.
Don't know about Access, but there is such thing for remote Oracle
database...

Subject:  DDM and PCs




With V4R4 you can use DDM over TCP/IP.  I've always liked the ability to
use
data on another system by just creating and object on my system and telling
that object where to look for the real one.  Kind of magic the way it would
establish a connection whenever the object was accessed.

Anyway, now we have PC servers everywhere and TCP/IP all over the place and
the need to look at and update data on PCs from the /400 and vice versa and
I
was wondering - Is there anything like DDM for PC to /400 file sharing? Any
sort of object I could create on a PC and then point to with a CRTDDMF-like
statement?

I know about (and am using) file transfer, ODBC, shared folders, ftp, ifs,
QNetWare, NetServer, etc. and I don't mean those things.  I mean doing
something like creating an Access database on the file server and telling
the
/400 "There it is, update it".

I don't think that there is such a thing because Microsoft is not capable
of
the level of sophistication required, but it never hurts to ask.  TIA,
Lance
