Maybe I didn't express myself very well. It is obviously not a major
dicision or would make a big difference. I was simply illustrating that my
application could make use of having the best of both Interbase worlds.

Initially the server database will accomodate 200+ users and this will
reach as high as 600 when it is fully implemented company wide.

As mentioned no, I just wanted to illustrate that my application ( and I'm
sure many other developer's applications ) can take advantages of both
achitectures. Obviously I could drop classic and standardise on SS, but if
each has an advantage and I want to give the client the best his money can
buy then giving him the best DB for both local and server is what I think I
should do.
