[thelist] SQL Server: Can I Import an Access DB via HTTP?

SQL Server types:

    On a far-flung branch of the corporate Intranet is an Access database
that I would like to periodically -- and automatically -- import into a SQL
server table. I can access the MDB file via a URL, but not via the file
system, and the hurdles I would have to jump over to gain access to the file
through the file system are too horrendous to even ponder.
    My question: is it possible to import data from an MDB file via HTTP
rather than via the file system?
    I can't find any info on this either at microsoft.com or via google, so
I'm turning to the big guns for help... Anyone?
