Hello: I'm working on a large database project that I currently have in VBA/Access 2007 and intend to put into VB.Net/Access 2007 as I think it might be a better idea but I'm not sure. This program is for a large law case where I will be required to deploy it by sending it out on disks to various other firms across the country. I'm a bit rusty with this so I want to know the best way to handle the solution. If all these other firms don't have Access, what other type of database should I use? What is the best practice for deployment?
What does "large" mean? Presumably you mean a lot of data versus a lot of users.
Using .Net should eliminate the problem of them not having MS Access. MS Access is the GUI part with some other additionally functionality, but is not required to actually access the data. However testing is always a good idea.

Alternatives really depend on exactly what the application is doing and what "large" means.
