Is there a limit on the distance a cable can be run to connect a server to a client?

Is there a limit on the distance a cable can be run to connect a server to a client? We are building a new facility and will have to connect the new building with the old building that houses the server.
It depends on whether you are using copper or fiber cables and what type. The limitation for copper is 100 meters. Fiber depends on the type of interface, type of fiber, etc. Check out this link for a chart covering fiber cables.
