    Sql server is much bigger:
    Security,
    Scalation,
    Size of data (fx videoclips)
    DTC, distributed transaction coordinator

    Access i guess is more for a PC solution.
    For an enterprise solution access is no match for SQL-Server.

    regards

    The main difference between SQL Server and Access is:

    Access - is a personal database, even if the database itself is on the network

    SQL Server - is a Client/Server database.

    Why Access is personal even though you have database on the network: because you computer still has the database engine installed locally, which drives the data, where SQL Server's engine is on the server.
