MS Access is only limited by those with limited initiative. I built systems that used 40+ simultaneous users (helpdesk app) and others that had a database that approached 900 Meg in size, and functioned. It is all in how you connect to it. If you use textbook code, which a paid "consultant" did for us in one application, you are doomed to failure. Or at lease data loss errors. If you are a MS SQL developer that does not use MS Access as a development tool, you are wasting the money of those that pay you. Access is not free (only the database is), and you have to spend time learning how to use it. Every SQL project I develop has Access right there beside Enterprise Manager during the database creation and adjustment phase. Gripe about no DTS in SQL 5000 Express, but not about MS Access. A good mechanic does not blame the wrench when he cannot get the job done.
