I've moved your post in the paid support section, removed your phone number and modified your mail so that it can't be registered by spam bots.
Perhaps you can detail what you need so that we can guide you.

Typically, with data pertaining contacts (business associates, suppliers, customers) and/or production (stock of raw material as well as finished products, workforce capacity, production lines, etc.) you will require - or at least benefit greatly from - having concurrent access. This requires running a separate database server, most likely one with support for transaction handling. This is not as daunting as it may sound. There may be a ready made web-based solution for you to install on a web server, either at an external "site provider" of some kind or by setting up a PC in-house for this task. Technically, such a database can also be accessed by Base directly, without setting up any web interface. Either way, some programming/tweaking must be expected.

The real challenge is setting up the database structure. Search the web for Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Customer Relationship Management (CRM). I guess the ultimate beast in these categories is SAP, but that comes at a cost on multiple levels...
If there is no ready made solution available that fits your needs, developing one from scratch may be a large project. As Hagar says, if you provide more detail, we are able to make a more precise assessment.

Thanks guys for your replies. I will attempt to explain in more detail where we are hoping to head for.
Firstly bit about the cardboard box industry. All boxes have a code number which are set out in the international Fibreboard Case Code known as FEFCO. The most



common box code is FEFCO "0201". What we have done is to use cALc to make job sheets to to be used on the machines. As can imagine there are various types of board with different tolerences.
We use 3 basic tables, namely Jobs,Planner and Stockref. When we get a customer order the details are put into Jobs with a given job no,then to planner with the job no.
all details are available to print out, see the job sheet. Although we are a small company you can imagine how the Stockref has grown over the last 4 years.
Considerable time is spent finding stock codes as each customers given a specific stock ref for each box.
I do hope this has made things clearer.

Best regards

You can use a 3rd party file sharing web site like mediafire.
