What about a scenario that there is a central (Main) database on a personal computer such as an Art Gallery that that consigns multiple artist's work.
The gallery wants to be able to allow an Artist to upload a one or two table database with just the new work information to a shared Google folder or possibly OneDrive. Then the Art Gallery wants to download the database and append table with the new work information to the main consignment database in the office. Do you see any GOTCHA's?

Keep in mind, we are not talking about business with budgets for online databases or even networks for that matter. They are all mom and pops or single Artist's/Maker's with little database experience.

I understand that, but you can set up an SQL Server online database PLUS web hosting from an ISP like GoDaddy for under $20/month. If you (the Developer) build them a front-end in Access and link it to their back-end database, then that would probably work just fine for them. You could even build a web page in ASP for clients to submit data, or even make them a separate front-end.

If they can't afford $20/mo then yeah, you could use Google Drive or OneDrive or DropBox and have them pass files back and forth, like I show in this video, but I suspect the time they will save from a PROPER solution will far outweigh $20/mo. The scenario I outline above is for people who have NO Internet server (plane, jungle, etc.)

I cover a similar setup in my SharePoint Seminar. SharePoint is fine for small teams. SQL Server is much more robust and can be used for outside users and connecting to your web site. I'll be covering it very soon.

Thanks for the response. I look for your SQL Server coverage.

Hope to have it ready in the next couple of weeks. It's high on the list.
