I know that we would not use an .mdb file for very many users. Has the new file structure changed to being more friendly? Does it provide for back end queries? Can someone give us the inside view... What does the new file system offer? What changed? What are we getting? I am sure there are many good or even a few good reasons for the change, but no one is taliking it up. We are all ears out here... ready for the answer.
