Using a Database vs. Random Access Files

Question:
Should I use a database for storing info, rather than random access files? The info I need to store could be rather large. I also will need much more than the standard DBcontrol can give me. Basically, what I am asking is what is the advantage of using a database over a file?

Answer:
A database approach definitely more reliable than manually searching through the files, and there are also a lot more tools for working with a database. Access is pretty smart about setting tables up, etc. where you do not have these capabilities with files.
