You can use Access as a front-end for SQL Server, if you like. You can also
use web pages or a custom application written in whatever you like (although
Visual Basic or Visual C++ would seem to be sensible choices)

Subject: [thelist] OT - Front-end for MS-SQL?


I have a simple little question that is a little off topic. One of the
websites that I work on is planning on changing from MS Access to MS-SQL
Server 2000 as it's database. My question is this, what is the front-end
used for MS-SQL? Access is an integrated environment in that the database
and the graphical user interface are all in the same program, is MS-SQL the
same way or is there a graphical front that gets installed on client
machines that links in with the main server? The SysAdmin guy insists that
the only front-end for MS-SQL is Access, is this correct. It just seems to
me to be a rather low end, cheap front end for such a high quality database
