    Default Sql Vs Dbf

    What is the basic advantage of leaving the .dbf tables and going to SQL tables. Also is DBF format slowly being phased out. What is the better SQL engine to use.

    I currently am using Alpha v8 in a laboratory situation and will be taking it to the web version.

    mySQL is free for internal use and seems the best tested and most compatible... also SQL eliminates the whole issue of having to synch data from developer to server...
