    Microsoft ACCESS 2003 HELP!!!!

    have a major problem. I am developing a database for a client that contains
    over 302 tables, all of which have thousands of rows. 301 of these tables
    need to be linked to the parent table, and all have the same primary key.
    However, I have recieved that evil error message that only 32 tables can be
    indexed. I have searched and searched, but cannot find a solution to this.
    I am desperate for any suggestions, even if it means taking avenues other
    than ACCESS 2003. The only requirements are that the database has the
    ability to be online, collecting data from other parties via some sort of
    form. Also, these tables must have full capabilities to be edited and
    controlled, not read-only. CAN ANYONE HELP ME??? There is a huge deadline
    coming in hours. Thanks!

    Access is not very robust - especially with a large number of tables and/or
    a complex schema (such as it is).
    You didn't mention whether free was a consideration, but MySQL might be
    worth looking at. It has quirks too, but a zillion people use it (since it
    is free).
