How do I link to my inhouse database over the internet ?

We have a Windows client/server database system in-house (it uses VB6 and Access but we can go to SQL Server).We now want to let our customers have access to the database over the internet for simple queries. But our website is hosted (not in-house).It wouldn't be practicable to have our database hosted remotely - it is used very heavily in house, whilst we only expect light usage over the internet.How do we link from a page on our website to the database on our server ?We'd write a simple application to allow queries from the browser - any suggestions in what language ?


Oh, I always listen to any of my 'meters'. You must go and go now. Hope I'm not too late.
Water molecules are attracted to eachother because they are polar. In the middle of the water column, the force of attraction drawing on one molecule is essentially equal in all directions, so the forces are cancelled out, there is no net force, and thus no accelleration of the particle. However, at the surface of the water, the molecules are attracted downward to the molecules below, without an opposing upward attraction. For this reason the surface of water assumes a minimal surface area, just like a taut rubber sheet. This is what is commonly referred to as surface tension. Corn oil is a hydrocarbon based molecule which, unlike water, has very little bonding force between molecules. Therefore the force drawing it into a minimal surface area is much less. Oil will spread out on surfaces on which water beads up (i.e., forms spheres - a shape with a minimal surface area to volume ratio!). I hope that helps.
