SQL Server vs. Access for queries on the back-end

SQL Server vs. Access for queries on the back-end

SQL Server vs. Access for queries on the back-end

(OP)
I have an MDB that I use to create management reports or queries.
Sometimes the tables are large and Access does not seem to be up to the task of such
large tables sending data over the network. Will SQL Server work faster than Access
on linked DB2 back end tables using T-SQL or the SQL Server query designer.

I might have to piggy-back on someone's SQL Server machine.

RE: SQL Server vs. Access for queries on the back-end

Well it's a good question!
From the end of your post i believe that you are using the server in someone else machine. Therefore i wouldn't use the T-SQL for the reason of premissions and link problems.
If the tables are large 'divide and conquer'. Then use inner join in the sql queries.

Good work

RE: SQL Server vs. Access for queries on the back-end

If use ACCESS database or SQL database no doubt the second.
In my opinion the SQL database is Faster, safer and more reliable for the user.
But some points have to be applied by the programer:
- Connection;
- Permissions.
