We have 10 -12 users outside our university network that will use a Microsoft Access 2007 database via RDP Services (formally Terminal Services).
Will multiple users be able to open the the database at the same time and make changes via RDP services?  Thanks

Yes providing the users are not going to modify any objects in the database. They can however add/edit/delete data without any problems.
Just know that if a user deletes data that another user is viewing it will says #Deleted instead of displaying the data.

Should work fine as long as the DB is designed to be shared.  Access will run fine for multiple users on RDP.
