    Maximum number of records in a table (2003)

    Is there a maximum number of records you can have in a table?

    I require a table to hold 500,000 plus records , is this possible.
    If there is an limitation can it be increased?

    Any assistance would be appreciated.


    Regards
    Justin

    There is really no limitation on the number of records in a table as long as the database stays below 2GB. Of course, the more records you have, the time to process may be slower. I have tables with over 1 million records that work fine without issue. However, due to the large amount of data, I pre-process data before applying queries to speed up processing.

    If you go to Access Help, and type in the keyword "Specifications", you can see all the various limits that Access has for file size, etc.
