data from reports easily and quickly without having to memorize commands
That means you need a UI. That probably means you'd need to write one, generate one, or use Access as your front-end.

2. Data will come from 4 sources.
The database doesn't care where the data comes from. A is a simple import-operation. B and C cannot be automated, someone will have to enter the data. D is missing.

Sea_Sharp wrote:
3. Data will need to auto-generate reports.
Data doesn't do things, it just sits there. Databases are also usually not responsible for generating a report; you will probably need to create a report-template that gets filled dynamically, with a filter for each property. I'd put the database in SQL Server, link from Access to it, and exclaim it's "done". Access has a low learning-curve and everyone could click together the reports as they see fit. Excell could probably do the same.

Sea_Sharp wrote:
4. Data will need to be backed up often (at least once maybe more per day, to prevent data loss or erroneous operations
Backups do not prevent errors; any error gets backed up along with the rest of the data. Any major database-server supports backup-operations.

In terms of importance I believe it should be arranged in the following hierarchy
It doesn't work that way. There's a comparison of database-servers here[^] - take a look at the capabilities, compare them to your needs, pick one. And make sure it is SQL Server that you pick. SQL Server Express is free, you could design your db in Access (and have a working Access-db as a backup if this experiment fails), and simply import it in SQL Server when you're ready (using the upsize-wizard in Access)

"No bugs" is something that can never be guaranteed in complex systems; there's however a difference in patch-frequency. I know most people disable their auto-update, but I kinda like being updated regularly.

You can also safely assume that databases store data without loss, unless it's beta-software. And yes, all major database-servers return data on simple queries in nearly no time.
