Hi,
I am developing a system for a business and would like the server to be one of the computers of the organisation. My problem is that i don't know how to make the database accessible by the other machines. Thanks in advance.

What version of SQL are we talking about?
If it's Express, then there are limitations (to concurent users, GUI and others).
Other than that all SQL servers are available to the network.
Have your program connect to the SQL via the appropriate connection string (Look here : http://www.connectionstrings.com/ )

commented: straight to the point and good references +3
