Editing files while stored in DropBox/

If we stored our Microsoft Access database in DropBox, can we edit the file in the cloud without downloading it back to our computer each time we wanted to make an edit?  It's not a large file - about 40 GB.  Do we have to worry about data integrity/losing data as we transfer the file back and forward?

 

Appreciate feedback from the community.

Thank you.

Hi @DianeCOA, thanks for posting today!

 

Could you clarify on how you're going to edit the Access database on the cloud? Are you linking it to another application, since currently only Word, Excel and PowerPoint can be amended online.

 

Are you planning on having the Access database downloaded to your machines to then make changes on? Is more than one user going to edit at the same time?

 

Let me know more information so I can assist further!
