    [RESOLVED] MS ACCESS FORMS versus VB.NET STANDALONE APPLICATION versus WEB APPLICATION (intranet

    hello everyone!!!
    I hope you could help me with my documentation. Please help me to compare and give advantages and disadvanatges of the following based on your experience:

    MS ACCESS FORMS versus VB.NET STANDALONE APPLICATION versus WEB APPLICATION (intranet)
    for example :
    __________________________________________________________________________
    1.CATEGORY|2.ACCESS FORMS|3.VB.NET(WINFORM)|4.VB.net(WEB)|5.comments
    ___________________________________________________________________________
    1.DEPLOYMENT|2.fail|3.fail|4.pass|5.when deploying standalone applications,you need to install it to all the computers unlike webapps that you only need the url to access it and does not require much work when there are updates.
    ___________________________________________________________________________
    I am hoping that youre inputs will give me more ideas to defend my thesis, thanks much!
    Any input will be greatly appeciated...

    MS ACCESS FORMS runs inside Visual Basic for Applications (VBA)
    pros - Easy access to database.
    Cons - Requires the user to have MS Access installed on there computer.

    VB.NET STAND ALONE
    Pros - Virtually no limit to what the app can do.
    cons - The app most take up space on the client computer.

    WEB APPLICATION
    Pros - No storeage on client computer
    cons - you have to have a server to store the database and a host for the website.

    beyond these simple pros and cons is nothing but a learnign curve. VBA makes it easy to work within Access. DB management through the web of VB.NET is its own programming disaplain. However, while each IDE is designed for a certian purpose all can pretty much do anything to other can as long as your willing to learn how to fully use it.

    Well, it does look suspiciously like homework

    Without experience, yes, it is difficult to even estimate the pros and cons of each.Each one is good in its own way, each one is bad in its own way. This may also involve some careful planning when you create an application, to estimate the appropriate need for the certain situation
