File Geodatabase and Licence Level

I have hopefully a simple question...

Is there any difference between a file geodatabase created with an ArcEditor level licence and one created with an ArcView level licence?

I use version 10.0 with an ArcView level licence.  OS is WinXP.

Thanks in advance,

Hi Arthur,

No, there are not. The Create File GDB geoprocessing tool is available in all licenses and does not impose any differences on a file geodatabase created depending on the ArcGIS Desktop license you use.

Hi Arthur, Alexey is correct, there is no difference whatsoever. A fGDB can be created with any license level.
