It is not the type of the database engine that is the problem but the skill of the people writing the application. There are many variants of SQL Why are you developing a new payroll system? There are existing programs that can easily handle tens of thousands of employees. The problem is giving the programmers all the specifications for the programs. It's the implementing of 'custom' features that takes forever to debug. An off the shelf package will work for over 90% of the employees.

If you have file layouts and source code then it should be modifiable. Many programmers don't like to work on someone else's code unless it is completely documented.

Perhaps bringing in a new employee that is comfortable with the new system will give the current payroll operator an incentive to learn the new system. There was an old adage that was embraced where I used to work: "Don't fix what isn't broken". I amended: "is a good way to get left behind..."

When your only tool is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail.

Web and Windows based interfaces look good but are not conducive to productivity, I knew an operator who could input into an old program faster than screen redraw. Using the keyboard only is an advantage ifr you know the program well.
