The company where I am working is growing. We are bringing on more Clients and someone suggested that we'll need more databases (maybe 1 for each. client) - yea my heart stopped for a sec. Not a great idea if you have thousands of clients huh? yea not gonna take that approach.

Well I know there has to be someone out there who has encountered this situation.
Where I used to work someone put a CompanyID column in ea. table to segragate the data by Company.

If anyone has information of different approaches. Pros/Cons etc it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Mark.

Do you mean to say each database for indivisual client on the same instance???

Yes. My manager though is having none of it - thank God!!

I guess this person has done some programming in the past - those are the folks that scare me.

They seem to know just enough to be dangerous and also have a mgrs ear. Thankfully my mgr
also still codes so she's not out of touch.
