In MS Access , maximum of only 255 users can access concurrently. Whereas for MSDE/SQL Server it is Virtually unlimited number of concurrent users

Oh,Believe me,You will run into a lot of trouble.

My advice,don't use it.

Why,well MS Access has the famous problem of Bloating to a very large extent when used in a multi-user environment.

The bloating problem can be reduced by compacting and repairing(it corrupts a lot as well) regularly.

But to compact,u need to have exclusive access to the database which means your application will have to be shut down on all users and then be compacted making it very cumbersome and also not up all the time.

Do a google with:

http://www.google.co.in/search?sourceid=navclient&q=MS+access+bloat+problem

You will find plenty of instances of the bloating problem.

If u don't want your http://www.google.co.in/search?sourceid=navclient&q=MS+access+bloat+problem

If your application wont be running 24x7,You can still risk using it.

But otherwise,Its a No-No situation.
