    Yeah, you should be able to scale those up without too much trouble. The first problem you&#039;re going to hit is that Access doesn&#039;t scale very well, but it&#039;s pretty straight-forward to upgrade to SQL Server, which should give you plenty of headroom for now. Once you&#039;re using SQL Server you can move the DB off onto its own server box (or cluster if you like) and the sky&#039;s the limit. If you need MAJOR scalability you&#039;ll eventually want to move to a web-farm type setup, which only causes problems if you are using the intrinsic Session object. If you&#039;re not using Sessions at all (or use a DB for session state) then you can scale to multiple web servers fairly easily. You can go the whole hog and have a cluster of application servers for your middle tier objects as well if needed...<BR><BR>Dunc
