Access is way more likely than SQL Server to corrupt a primary key field(s), especially when a large number of concurrent users are editing under the same index value, perhaps while someone is also turning off their computer without shutting down on a form bound to the same data. It was a facetious consideration because that kind of corruption occurs rarely in Access.
