    I may not be 100% clear on your statement, but...

    You only have to host a single database on the web. If the clients have a web-based interface, then that application simply needs to use a single DSN.

    To identify the data for each branch, add a table in the database for branches, and insert their branch ID along with each record.

    If your issue is beyond this solution or this is not clear, please post more questions or more details.

    Good luck,

    That is true, ISPs will not typically give you remote access to their servers. A web-based interface is a web page UI for your application. The majority of the code will remain the same, you just use a web page instead of a VB UI.

    Host the web application on the same ISP as the database.

    Good luck,
