Of course, and someone told you that if you post a vague and general
question to most any database newsgroup, someone there would be accomodating
enough to write you a thesis on the subject?

All the items you list are certainly factors, but the very first thing to
consider would be current, and anticpated future, user requirements -- and,
most any of these factors would, in themselves, be adequate subjects for a

For a description of the purpose of this newsgroup, and good suggestions for
effective use of newsgroups, see the FAQ at
http://www.mvps.org/access/netiquette.htm. That site is also chock-full of
excellent technical information to reduce people's need to ask the same
questions over and over in the newsgroup.

By the way, although Access and its default database engine, Jet, still
continue to amaze even its creators with its capability and scope, most
people who are not deeply involved with it consider it "just another desktop
database, albeit the most popular one ever" and would laugh you right out of
your Master's degree program if you wrote a thesis on creating a distributed
database application using Access (perhaps that is the best hint you will
get here... go look at "big-time server databases" like Microsoft or Sybase
SQL Server, IBM DB2, Oracle, Informix, and such when you get far enough
along in your thesis to cover "how to choose the database".

As an aside, they are going to expect that topic, though in the real world
outside the hallowed and ivied Halls of Academe, it rarely is an issue --
because most organizations already have settled on their
organizational-standard database and developers, unless they can make an
earth-shaking case, just have to live with it.

As a second aside, did you know that your handle, "Thunder", was the
development code name of Microsoft's first version of their classic Visual
Basic product? They bought it in a prototype stage from Alan Cooper, author
of "About Face" -- his code name prior to that purchase, if memory serves,
was "Ruby". Those versions bear little resemblance to the current VB.NET
product, BTW.

A distributed database is a specialization of distributed computing. A distributed database allows certain data specific operations to be distributed to one or more different machines. This means that the decision to perform an operation occurs on one machine and then one or more other machines end up performing the operation. Distributed database operations include searching, updating, and deleting data. Distributed computing operations can be...

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
