    If a division was located in Dallas, how does it access the corporate database in Michigan? The dallas location only needs to access certain features of an accounting software.

    Setup a VPN connection between the two site networks. The Dallas location should then have no problem accessing the database in Michigan.

    Depending on available bandwidth, the software, number of users, and IT staff at the remote location, Terminal Services/Citrix may be a better solution. Running database connections across WAN/internet links can suck, especially with the overhead of a VPN tunnel.
