MS Access is a desktop database, intended for small applications which work on desktop PCs. MS SQL Server is an enterprise level database that can work on a server with hundreds, of users if necessary. The main differences are that MS Access has a 2GB size limit, and SQL Server is limited only by your hardware. SQL Server has user logins, user level access, backup and restore functionality, programability features like stored procedures.

Yes, SQL Server can be used with classic ASP.

Hi johnhardy,

Visual Studio is an application IDE (Integrated Development Environment) for MS programming languages such as Visual Basic, C++, ASP and many others, SQL server is as described by Goodangel.  They are two entirely different applications - at a basic level (from a DBA perspective) databases are there to store and manage data and applications (written in visual Studio) are there to provide access to the data and make it look pretty for end users.
