    Angry Cannot Save to Sharepoint, says "Cannot save to this location"

    Hello,



    I need 2 people to be able to work in this database at a time. I do not want to split it, they need the reports as well as ability to edit the table. It is set to "Shared" under options. When I try saving to SharePoint I paste in the link to the SharePoint documents folder I want it in, and it gives the message "You can't save here. Please choose another location."

    Earlier I tried saving the database to a shared network folder, and had another coworker open the database. It made them download their own copy, and I could not see them in the file up in the corner like I can when sharing an excel file. I'm just having a difficult time getting this database to let me share it in general.

    How do I get around this?

    I used the option under Database tools to move it to SharePoint and it seems to have split the database anyway, but now I do not see the lists anywhere in the link it says it was uploaded to, and its not in the folder I provided the link for.

    Maybe you would expound on why you do not want to split the dB? For a multi-user dB, I would say it is (almost) required to split the dB into a BE (with ONLY the tables) and a FE (everything EXCEPT the tables).
    Multiple users in a non-split dB is a known cause of dB corruption.

    What do you mean by "edit the table?" You let users edit the design of the tables??

    Where are the 2 users located? On the same LAN?
    The BE would be in a shared location (folder) on the LAN and each user would have a copy of the FE on their local computer.



    Personally, Sharepoint is the last method I would use to share the dB. Granted, I have never used Sharepoint, but from what I read, it was extremely limiting.
