Post your question to a community of 468,790 developers. It's quick & easy.

Access && JET


Could anyone point me in the direction of a document that describes the
difference between JET and Access? I can't seem to find anything.

Another question i have is i have this application (.net) that writes to a
databaase every 10 milliseconds(purely for testing). While it's writing i
copy over the access file and it seems fine. Is this really safe? Is jet
blocking until it can write? If does it queue up data.
man it's hot in here so i hope these aren't stupid questions. Humidity is a
killer! :/

Copying a database that is in use works 98% of the time. That's why it
is so dangerous.

And Access stores its project files in specialized Jet databases
with Access-specific properties. All the MSys tables are the data
tables where the parts of your project are stored.
