I have a client who needs a program written for a handheld device with Windows CE 5.0 to query a table that has 10 million records in it. Can it hold this many records? If not, should I divide the data up to multiple tables and search different ones? What do you suggest? What is the limit? 4gb per table or overall?

well, who in your company has a windows handheld device, vs having an android or iphone/ipad? in my shop of 30 developers, there are no windows based portable devices.

I would question whether you want to even bother developing it; something that is going to touch a four gig local file/database is going to be painfully slow , no matter the processing power.

I'd reconsider the project, and build a web interface that accesses the data in SQL server, in a single central location, instead;

a web based app would be accessible to many more platforms, and involve a single code base, instead of developing for Windows + CE, and then Android + SQLite, and then Iphone, blackberry, etc.
