Access 2003 - database file limit

P: n/a
Hi,

I was wondering if the database file size limit was still 2GB in
Access 2003? Does anyone out there who has been beta testing or a mvp
have any info on this?

Regards

Mike,

The brief answer is No, you can go to the sky in Access 2003, but my
experience is that Access gets flakey when you get that high, especially if
you are adding a large number of records between Compact/Repair cycles.

Hope this helps.

I would've thought that given A2003 is using Jet 4.0 it still has the 2 Gb
limitation.
