    Question, I downloaded a free contact management dbase from microsoft.com and
    was wondering if there was any way to find out after downloading it what size
    or how many entries I can put in it. Is there any way (non-manually) I can
    check to see if a free anything has its limits?

    I would hate to try and data entry 400 contacts and find out the hard way
    that it was only intended for 150.

    If you are talking about a Microsoft Access database that is provided on the
    Microsoft website in the 'templates' section, then there is no limit. It is
    a basic design that you can use and modify as much as you'd like. I have
    started several of my databases using one of the templates. A year or two
    later you'd barely recognize them.

    You'll start having problems when your .mdb file (after compacting)
    starts pushing 2 billion bytes. 10,000,000 contacts might make it
    sweat.
