RE: MS Access DB

The mind boggles! A comparison between roller skates and an F-15. Why bother? As for the books, O'Reilly has some books on Access and they do the job. Basically MS Access is a very limited concurrency file manager product with some nice development capablilities and a poor sql engine that only runs on the worst operating system ever created for high performance. On the other hand there is absolutely nothing nice (from a user perspective) about Oracle. Concurrency, good sql, high performance, great reliablity...... if those are the factors that are important to you go with Oracle. If you plan to network the app and you plan to have more than 10 users please go to at least SQL Server.

Does anyone know where I can find a comparative analysis of MS Access DB to Oracle? Any good books on Access?

Thanks much,
