I have an Access database that I use to maintain certain records for work. I would like to make an app for my tablet (Surface RT), that would allow me to at least do some simple queries and viewing of reports of that database. Two questions:
1. I understand that the preferred method to do this is to make some kind of web app based off the database and make the app use that. Is this understanding correct?
2. What is the preferred language to write both the server and the client side apps?
Thank you for any advice!
