    My web applicaiton will be used by intranet users say 10-500 and may be
    more. Currently I have prototyped my Web application using MS Access. Can
    somebody justify me that Access is not the right DB for such
    load/connections. What are the disadvantages of using Access in such
    situation. What other databases will be the best match. like SQL Server
    Express, Sybase Adaptive Anywhere. ?

    It will be nice if I get the comparision list somewhere...

    Thanks

    No specific page that I know of however ten users would likely be fine
    on an Access app. But 500 certainly wouldn't be. Where is the middle
    ground? No idea.

    Clearly if you are using IIS and such then SQL Server Express would be
    a better match. But as to what problems you could have with other
    products I don't know. Oracle just came out with a free for personal
    use version IIRC the details correctly. So you could even use that
    one for testing purposes.
