If you have Office 97, it would depend on the version you have, 'Professional' has Access as part of the suite, whereas 'Standard' doesn't. Even if you do have Professional, you may not have selected it to be installed, when you installed the suite.
A Microsoft software product that is primarily a data management tool (database software). Access has tools to enter, edit, and index data and to retrieve it via custom forms and reports. It also contains Visual Basic for Applications .
Access is the database part of Microsoft Office, it is a very powerful program and Microsoft do not supply it with standard versions of Office, it only comes with Professional editions, therefore it is not cheap. Office Professional is about ?300.
If you search online you may be able to find "standalone" versions that are about ?99.
Sorry about that.
btw Access doesn't come in the Student & Teacher version, so ignore the posting above.
