Using stacks as a database for very large data sets

For me it would work, because, although the stack may be used by
different people on different computers - it would never be used by
different people at the same time.

Only one of us would compose the Media Tracking Report on any given day.

Would something like this work? There would be two versions of the 
splash-stack, one for User-A, and another for User-B, C, etc.

User-A  opens splash-stack and data-stack.
               -dataStackInUse is set to true --flag
(User-B cannot open stacks)

User-A is finished with stacks.  Closes.
               -dataStackInUse is set to false

User-B may now open splash-stack and data-stack.
              -splash-stack and data-stack are automatically copied to 
computer B.
              -dataStackInUse is set to true
(User-A cannot open stacks)

User-B is finished with stacks.  Closes. --but before closeStack, the 
following:
              -splash-stack and data-stack are automatically copied back

to computer A.
               -dataStackInUse is set to false
