...Yes! Access *is* a relational db :-)

Hyperboles aside, I might agree Access capabilities are limited to non-large-scale systems.
But in general, do you think they'd release a 2007 version that is uncapable of handling commercial applications at all?

IMO, Access is well suited to small/medium scale applications. From a programming standpoint, VBA won't make you miss the flexibility of sqlserver storedprocs.

You know, it's just that there's such a big business going on - they'll get you to migrate everything to sqlserver.
As you depict it, I'd just stick to Access and go for the best of it.
