    newbie here...

    Given an app that's located on the client computer, assuming this computer doesn't have Access or any other Database server/software. Currently, I have a million of records containing ssn in a text file to do the searching for a particular ssn. I'd like to know if there's any other independent database or method that's faster than using the text file. Please let me know.
