Hi There...

I guess that there is no limit for a db. But I think that when the db will become very big you`ll experience other kind of problems (slow browsing probably). I have never had probs with MS Access. But I know that if you want your db to be "professional" has to be something better (MySQL is the other one I have tried and it`s much better).
