    64 quadrillion records? 8 Terabytes?



      64 quadrillion records? 8 Terabytes?


      I have a 4.8 gig file. One 3.5 million record table takes forever to sort or use. Is there a check list or guide for large file development?


      Also, I just bought FMP 10 not even opened yet. Is there a free upgrade to FMP 11 or do I need to purchase the upgrade?

      Would 11 handle the above file better?





      MacPro 4g ram, FMSA 10 and FMP 9 client.

          I dont think you will gain anything except features from FMP11. The underlying architecture hasnt changed so the size of the data should be a moot point when it comes to upgrading.


          As for the upgrade, I believe there is a small window to return the software. You may wait until TSGal responds or perhaps even call them to ask.


          Furthermore, with those may records I personally would stay with SQL.
