What is the database capacity of SoftCart?

Using the ASCII tab delimited data file that comes with SoftCart, stores can support up to about 7,500 products in a database. For more than 7,500 products we recommend using a relational database. On Windows NT SoftCart provides an ODBC interface allowing connections to any ODBC compliant database such as Oracle, Sybase, or Informix. In addition for the UNIX environment, we would suggest using the Mercantec Product API to develop a direct connection between SoftCart and the existing relational database. This has been done for Oracle, MySQL, and Sybase by third parties.
