I'm trying to aggregate about 500-1000 MS Excel files that deal with various small business issues (inventory, purchase orders, etc) and I'm currently trying to decide what kind of RDMS I should use. To give you more detail, the database will be mainly used by 1 maybe 2 people hosted on network server. Currently, I've been fooling around with MariaDB and Microsoft Access. Excel data is easily imported into MS Access and I have some road bumps when it comes to importing that same data using MariaDB. The DB must be easily query-able and must have the capability to easily import data from a spreadsheet.
I'm not sure what direction to go in, do I continue fenagling with MariaDb and MySQL or move onto MS Access. Or, should I be using something else?
