Can I put the database on 2 computers?
The license is good for 1 PC or a network. While you can put the database on 2 computers it is not recommended. If the database is on 2 separate computers then the data on one computer can be updated but the other computer will not have those updates. Very quickly the 2 data sets are not the same and it is a lot of work to fix them both.
Can I put the database on Drop Box or Google Drive?
The database can be stored but not used on any of the web file sharing sites. Drop Box and Google Drive are not set up to handle the complexity of a database.
Is there a web version of the database?
No - sorry. I have tried several on-line database applications but none of them work well with the data and photos.
If it must be on the web you can look into a 3rd party host like AccessHosting.com who will store the database on their server. After a setup fee there are monthly charges of $25 per user or more. Most of my customers decided they did not want to commit to the monthly fees.
