MS Excel is not a database

MS Access is for desktop applications, It is not designed for multiple users or client server systems but is a good starting point

MS SQL Server is your best option and is easy to use with C#. That would be my recommendation

MS Excel is not a database
Access is not a database either: it is a RAD environment that BY DEFAULT uses MS-JET which is a sort of RDBMS-LITE.
...So that leaves you with MS-SQL which IS a true full-blown RDBMS.
