This is Ashok jain currently working on small Ms-Access project and i am a learner

i got used to splitting the database and using the front end and backend (Datas) in seperate locations in the same desktop system

now i am trying to link the data from my FTP location from my desktop system which has the forms which acts as the front end.
i have uploaded the splitted database on my ftp server too and when i try to link my forms to the data on the ftp location it says "Invalid File Name" and i was not able to link the data to my desktop system.
for your kind information.. i ahven't changed the name of the database which is present on my local system and also uploaded datas on my FTP location

FTP is not a file system - it's used to transfer files from one location to another so you can't use it for accessing a MS Access database.

Your only choice is using a File Share on this server.
