When no network and no server and single user then Access (JET) is often significantly faster than sql server. SQL server forces you to do everything though a huge extra layer that involves transactions and a socket based (network) connection. Jet just literally scraps data right off the disk with no huge framework between that reading of data from the disk. SQL server or Access (JET) does not change the speed of file reading from the disk drive. So, JET has significant less overhead then sql server and my testing shows JET is often 50% faster when no network is involved
