How it Works
When you publish a web database, Access Services creates a SharePoint site that contains the database. Every database you publish will have it’s own unique URL (i.e. demo.accesshosting.com/database1/). All of the database tables, forms, reports and queries move into SharePoint as part of the publishing process.
After you publish, SharePoint visitors can use your database, based on their permissions for the SharePoint site. They can visit the web database’s URL or you can distribute an .accdw file that they can open in Access 2010 or the free Access Runtime.
