Microsoft Access is a fully capable database and it's primary limitations is the number of concurrent users it will support. Generally, we recommend a limit of 10 to 15 users.
We create databases large and small. Some of our databases help run entire small businesses. We also handle unique businesses such as flyrod manufacturing, cheese making, marina management, and cable tv inventory.
This Access database download shows how you can use the Docmd.Runsql statement in the after
update (afterupdate) event to increment and decrement
inventory totals. The methods demonstrated here are only suitable for
single-user database systems since the code does not take into account the
possibility of locked table records.

The inventory calculations method shown in this example should only be considered for a one-user inventory system. Consider using transaction processing for these types of calculations in a multi-user database so that record locking and update failures can be tracked to increase database integrity and inventory calculation accuracy.
