Hi All Experts
Does anyone know whether having more back-ends with fewer tables performs slower/faster than say one BIG backend with all tables.

I have a number of systems with approximately 10 front-ends (for different departments/functionality etc) and 10 back-ends and always wondered if 'consolidating' the BEs would increase/decrease performance?

The multiple BE systems seem to perform OK; although they require periodic c&r (usually every 3-6 months )

Ideally this question would be answered by someone who has had similar installations over many years (or is involved in MS Access JET/ACE design and drivers)
