    3939FLAT FILE/SDBM, or MDB, relational database systems can employ file naming convention to make it easy for a DB application user-interface to determine which file(s) to look in. Example:  A flat file named US_CENSUS_2010_TX_A.txt (or .mdb for MS-Access) would be one way to identify a file logically segregated to contain only data associated with Texas citizens whose last name began with the letter "A".  A business would need to determine what logical segregation of data made the most sense for their operational needs. Server-side batch EDIT operations and heavy reporting could be performed during off hours. For common data statistics, a statistics table could be maintained (Server-side during off hours) which answered most user questions which would be an aggregate of the data across the entire database system (as in: Stats for the entire U.S., and Stats for each individual State of the 50 States - from the example given above).
