How many concurrent users in an active database?

Hi,

(Nothing new in this question)

Access 2007.
What is the recommended MAXIMUM number of concurrent users?

Not a great deal of traffic per user - slightly less than average.

Any views?

a.k.a. How long is a piece of string?

I'll add in basically along Scott's comment; 30 or 40 for a typical read/write app.

If reporting only, you can go right up to 255.

And of course we would be remiss in pointing out that this is with JET.   If Access is used as a FE to SQL Server, then sky's the limit (well actually your pocket<g>).

Jim.
Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.
