    I have Access.

    I don't have Oracle.


    I consider this to be a major advantage to choosing Access for database development.
    oh yeah... documentation... I have heard of that.

    budget primarily.

    possibly more developers in the Microsoft world, but thats offset by there being more dodgy developers in the Microsoft world

    however Microsoft db's run on Microsoft servers, Oracle is platform independent
    until relatively recently I'd have said Microsoft (access with a Server backend) was better in small to large requirements, and Oracle better in massive to gynormous requirements. If you are using Access/JET then i'd stick to Access as fine for small applications and Oracle for medium to gynormous apps. but as Access can connect to oracle you could have both.

    Oracle has the better 'snob' appeal in some areas ie being an Oracle developer had/has a career/peer approval than Microsoft.
    I'd rather be riding on the Tiger 800 or the Norton

    Comparing Access and Oracle is like comparing apples and oranges. They are intended for entirely different projects.

    It is less a case of advantages of one over the other and more about identifying the requirements of your project and then selecting the appropriate technology from that (which may turn out to be neither Access nor Oracle).
