Hi Scott, Size isn't so much the issue, since it is only about 4-5 mb, but I think I would have to design and run 2 separate databases because of information contained in the original db about inventory, the suppliers, costs, and other sensitive information. I think that would mean either double entry of all items or restripping the original and changing the relationships each time to resave it. But I'm definitely open to the idea if it doesn't mean I have to have 2 databases.
