    Do you have any programming experience at all? If so, what?

    Also, be sure to check out the Guides and Stickies at the top of this very forum.

    What kind of database? Where does it reside? Can it provide web-services, if remote? We'll need a lot more details of what you're dealing with before we can provide any direction.

    Well, I believe you will need to set up some web-services for your remote Access database. I don't have any experience with that so can't recommend any tutorials or books.

    If you can get your web-services to produce JSON, then here is a tutorial on consuming JSON from within an iOS app: Working with JSON in iOS 5

    Sure, there are numerous possibilities for implementing your remote database, from something as simple as a plist file sitting on the server to a full-blown Oracle or SQL Server database.

    The key is that the usual way to provide access to that remote database is via web-services.

    Since you don't seem to be confined by the kind of remote database, you should probably go with whatever is most comfortable for you and provides you the necessary capabilities to do the kinds of things you are trying to do with it.
