ACT 2011 & SQL Server 2008 Express database

Hello,

 

I've looked but can't find any information on whether or not the 2008 express database has the same 4gb limit as the 2005 express database has. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thank you

Hello,

Thank you for your reply.
Is this info specifically for ACT 2011 and SQL 2008 express db's or is this general info, regardless of the application that is using a 2008 express db?

Thank you

This is general information for the SQL Server 2008 R2 Express program.  It is not dependant upon the application that uses SQL 2008 R2 Express.

Hi Greg,

I can't tell, but does your reply mean that there is a 4 gb limit in ACT with the 2008 express db?

Thank you

Sorry it was confusing... any application using SQL 2008 Express R2 will have a 10gb limit for each database.  Act! will have a 10gb limit per database.
