SDF file won't load in Studio. File too big?

Hi Jason:

Thanks for the feedback.  I thought it might be memory or timeout issue.  I 
tried tinkering with my server paging but that didn't solve anything.  I am 
using Apache/PHP.  I thought there might be some configurabble things there 
but don't kow if/where to look.  Anyway, I'll try your tips.  Replacing a 
dummy file file with the real one would be really simple.

Hi Bob,

Beyond a certain size, you'll run into memory limits and timeouts in PHP, or 
equivalent process timeouts in IIS or Apache.  These are pretty difficult to 
work around.

Have you looked at creating a package and loading it through either the 
admin studio or the command-line utilities I hacked together a while back?

Another option would be to load a small SDF file with the same name and 
structure, and then replace it on the server with the larger one.
