FTPThe file transfer protocol is one of the most commonly used methods of copying files across the Internet. It has its origins on UNIX machines, but has been adapted to almost every type of computer in existence and is built into many browsers. Most FTP programs have two modes of operation, ASCII, and binary. Transmitting an ASCII file via the ASCII mode of operation is more efficient and cleaner. Transmitting a binary file via the ASCII mode of operation will result in a broken binary file. Thus the FTP programs that do not support both modes of operation will typically only do the binary mode, as binary transfers are capable of transferring both kinds of data without corruption.

For existing MS Access or SQL Server databases, you'll have one or more requests: 1) add new features to your Access database, 2) Disaster Planning and/or Recovery of your Access or SQL server database software, and 3) speed it up!!! The last request is very common. With many Microsoft MS Access databases - not enough attention is paid to how to maximize Access performance on your office Lan / Wan network. This is especially true when your Microsoft Access database was originally a single user desktop database and then became multi-user.

Initially planning to develop your custom database software using Microsoft MS Access is very practical. Most Toronto companies and business professionals already have Microsoft MS Access database software (and the Microsoft MS Office VBA / Macro programming language software) already installed, on their pc's, with Microsoft MS Office (for Outlook, Excel, and Word Interoperability thru MS Office VBA / Macro software). We can also update your old Visual Basic (VB) program, and We've also helped Mac OS X+ computer users to benefit from custom Microsoft MS Access database software!

While Access can handle any type of business application, it has a ceiling related to: 1) the number of concurrent users, 2) the location(s) of the users, and 3) the amount of data it can efficiently store and retrieve - in which case other Microsoft technologies such as Microsoft MS SQL Server, the Microsoft .Net framework (asp.net - visual basic .net - c#), or classic ASP website programming will need to be employed (see when to use Microsoft MS Access vs. MS SQL Server).
