Table column count to the same than in SQL Server
It makes it much simpler to create applications if 254 column restriction is not applied like in Access. Unfortunately in Engineering system I can't avoid using more than 254 columns. Computer speed is not anymore a problem so why to have that limit.

@Juha: I think you can you can easily work around this issue by creating a passthru query "select * from myTable"
