[thelist] MS Access CREATE TABLE

Personally, I would just fork out the US$49.95 and get SQL Server Developer
Edition (same feature as SQL Server Enterprise Edition, but the licence
limits you to development work only). Then you get client tools etc, and a
full blown copy of SQL Server to do you work with.

: David,
: Most clients I've worked with won't upsize to SQL Server because of the
: cost.  Microsoft offers a FREE version of SQL Server that is perfect for
: traffic sites.  Since the site is running off of Access, this FREE SQL
: Server should be a really good fit.

: If you decide to go this route, you'll quickly see that it doesn't include
: Enterprise Manager.  To get EM, pull down the evaluation version of the
: SQL Server and then install only the "client tools".

: Best of luck,
