Is/are there database software that will process large files, 7GB for
example, on a Pentium III platform running W9x or W2K?

Hi Ted,

I am not sure what you mean,

SQL Server can easily handle that much data

Thanks for the response*.  I'm a Clipper programmer, so I'm stuck
in the world of 2GB (32 bit address space).  I know next to nothing
about SQL Server.  Stupid question, but, can I run MS SQL 7 on Windows
2000?  Or does it have to be a Windows 2000 Server?

Thanks.

Yes, you can run SQL 2000 on Windows 2000 Professional (I assume that's
what you mean.)  I'm not sure if you're limited in the number of
connections that it can handle though.

 Ted - you can only run the desktop/personal/MSDE editions on professional.  
See sql7versions / sql2000versions FAQ entries for differences.

For database server functionality run MSSQL 7 on Windows 2000 Server. If
you're going so far as to install mssql on Windows 2000 you might consider
just installing SQL Server 2000.
