    I have a very large database that is in microsoft access. I would like limited access to this database via android. I do not want to store the database on the phones. Is there currently any apps out there worth looking at?

    I don't know of any off-the-shelf. You don't say whether you want to view it over an internal network or the internet. Either way, I would have thought a web page was the way to go. It would need some custom code (e.g. .asp or .aspnet) to present the data onto a webpage.

    Can provide any additonal detail about "limited access"? Do you mean remotely view data in the actaul tables, or perhaps run a query against the database and receive a result set?

    Limited meaning I do not want the person using the phone to have a copy of my database. I run a HVAC co. and want the service tech to be able to look up customer information, service invoices. That sort of information.
