no offence but that questions is not answerable. I wouldnt expect many
replies. Let me try to help you out by asking YOU a few questions which
might point you into the correct direction:
1) Is the data entered once and than mostly read access or is it
frequently updated ?
2) Do you need transaction support ?
3) Do you need the data to be EASY transferable between different OS
BTW: You posted into another thread (which is not good).
I suggest you think about the above questions and start a new topic again.
