Database selectioniInventory provides you with a number of choices when it comes to where you want to store your asset records. For small installations with fewer than 100 assets to track, iInventory can save the information into an Access-compatible database. Medium-sized installations that track more than 100 assets may want to use the MSDE version of Microsoft SQL Server. You can also opt to save the tracking information into a full-fledged SQL Server database. If you do not already have SQL Server in your organization, you must install it before using iInventory.
