I have a client who needs a vb.net 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?

Thanks!

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.
