Copy your database, copy it again, Import the copy2 into the copy one.
Save As the database, import, repeat as needed
You will double the size of your database each time.
A decent way to determine size and speed constraints on YOUR database.
Thanks for the tip - - not a bad idea . . . bascially you're saying to make a copy (as a back-up of course) and then
test that copy by multiplying itself to see how much it can hold - kinda like seeing how much water a boat can hold before it sinks!
