    Unanswered: Access/SQL or Filemaker (from Paradox)?

    I've been programming in Paradox since DOS, but one mail-order database is getting rather large (100K client records, and associated orders, etc).

    Our client wants us to move to Filemaker. In fact he'd like to have a 3rd party write the programme and me maintain it. The current package has been written & maintained by myself, with an awful lot lot going on in the Object PAL code.

    I already have a copy (legal) of SQL Server & 10 licences for Access, and think that's a better option to re-develop in (although I could do with some training in both).

    What are the pros & cons for each app, and what would people recommend. I'm going to cross-post into Paradox, SQL Server & Filemaker forums to get an equal view.

    The major hurdle I present to any of my clients from going from "x" to SQL Server is cost. If you already have that covered, move in that direction.
    oh yeah... documentation... I have heard of that.
