Generally speaking, if the following issues are addressed properly, MS Access will function very well in a multi-user environment.In regards to a multi-user environment, many professionals continue to operate under the paradigm that MS Access doesn't work properly in a multi-user environment.
In a multi-user environment record locking should be set as follows: Split Your Database: Splitting your Access database will dramatically improve performance in a multi-user environment.

is this forms-based, that is, does each user update tables through forms?
