there is a dreamweaver ultradev extension called PHAkt which claims to do
this for you. i haven't used it (yet - i plan to try it soon) but it looks
good. it is the free cousin of ImpAKT, which looks even better.

basically, you supply the database logic and it produces add/edit/delete
forms for you. have a look yourself: http://www.interakt.ro

looks like this may be the case. you can connect directly to the database
from your desktop using Access using ODBC. you could produce access forms
and give them to users perhaps? i have never done this myself, so i am
speaking from other peoples' experiences here... ;o)

sorry, not much help i guess.
