What is Microsoft Access?
Microsoft Office Access, previously known as Microsoft Access, is a relational database management system from Microsoft which combines the relational Microsoft Jet Database Engine with a graphical user interface. It is a member of the 2007 Microsoft Office system. Access can use data stored in Access/Jet, Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, or any ODBC-compliant data container. Skilled software developers and data architects use it to develop application software. Relatively unskilled programmers and non-programmer "power users" can use it to build simple applications. It supports some object-oriented (OO) techniques but falls short of being a fully OO development tool. Access was also the name of a communications program from Microsoft, meant to compete with ProComm and other programs. This Access proved a failure and was dropped. Years later Microsoft reused the name for its database software.

It isn't necessarily better than Microsoft Excel. It depends on what you want to do. Both Excel and Access are capable of doing a lot of things that the other can do.

Yes, for the most part the two are compatible, however Access 2007 creates a new type of database format (ACCDB) that Access 2003 cannot read (it uses MDB). There are some new… features in Access 2007 that 2003 does not have (obviously), but if you're using a database that's formatting for 2000 or 2003, then Access 2007 can work with it seamlessly. My advice is that if you have users on multiple versions of Access, then use the database file format with the OLDEST version common to everyone. Richard Rost AccessLearningZone.com
