Since you are opting for tables of approx 100k rows I will suggest that
you start playing with backend databases like firebird, mariadb,mysql etc.

They provide much better speed on network.

Any app with this many rows will naturally not be run on standalone.

The second feature of importance is the availability of full sql support
with these rdbms.

These enable complex rowset generations easy.

Changing to  backend databases requires change in coding. Since you have
started development of a new app I will suggest you make the change
right now.
