Working with Database's

  SB23 17:00 09 May 2006

I currently have work to do with Databases. I would be using it for approx 4-5 weeks, but the only way that I can use it, is if I go to my local Education Centre, which is only accessible a few hours a week.
I thought I had Access on my pc, with Office, but don't
Microsoft Access is great, but I do not know if it is possible to purchase on its own, and how much it would be. Any ideas? Or am I restricted to my local Centre?

you could download freebie click here vers 2 which is microsoft compatible and might get you out of trouble.

I have both MS Office 97 and MS Office 2000. Both of which came with Word, Excel, Access and Powerpoint. Are you sure it is Office you have and not MS Works?

It's Office, but just didn't have Access. Would it have something to do with the fact that when my wife bought it, it was for students?

Thanks for that, but tried it a while ago, and didn't like it.

Access only comes with Office Professional. It can be purchased on its own at a price. You can also get Access on e-bay but watch out for pirate and oem copies.

If I'm only going to need it for a few weeks, don't know if it would be worth buying it.
I may have another go at Openoffice as johnnyrocker suggests. Will have a look.

Thanks all

As johnnyrocker suggested, can use Openoffice to get me by for the time being. Its actually not bad when you get used to it.

Thanks everyone.
