My client would like to share with multiple users their Access Database on onedrive.

Is this possible, if so does anyone have a good link I could read this up on?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Possible yes, workable no.

Look at migrating the database to SQL or Azure DB instead.
Gustav BrockCIOCommented:
It is not possible for concurrent usage. The only realistic scenario is, if you work on the database in office, then go home and continue working on it. In the meantime, it will have synchronised, and it will again when you next day return to the office.

In all other cases, move the backend to SQL Server or similar, either on-premise or hosted in the cloud. Azure SQL can be used but it very slow for the small and cheap instances - but you can check that out for free for 30 days.

For moving to SQL Server, a tool is available: SQL Server Migration Assistant for Access

As has been pointed out, no. The reason is that OneDrive copies the latest version of the entire file, not just records changed.
