  • Since this *is* posted in the architecture forum ... I'll add my 2 cents regarding picking an Access database as part of your application architecture.

    If possible, don't. Use SQL Server instead. The SQL Server Express edition is free and much full featured/state of the art.

    Hope this helps.
