[thelist] is Access enough?

Can't Access be used as a front end to other RDBMS's using ODBC? I
thought this was the case, but I never use/can't stand Access so I'm not
totally sure.

If it were, then you could just install MySQL+MyODBC on the box you were
going run Access on and use Access as the front end to THAT database,
which would have absolutely no problem handling the type of load you're
talking about.

Or you could dump Access altogether and just use MySQL, because it's
free and wonderful :). I could go on and on about how free software has
made just about everything creative I do with computers possible, but I
won't unless provoked... for everyone's sake :).
