I have a small issue with regards to MS Access. A certain department(20 PC's) here at work just has the MS Office Standard Edition installed(No MS Access). I want them to be able to use MS Access. I am wondering what would be the least expensive way to achieve this. Just purchase the 20 licenses for Access? Purchase a upgrade? Any type of info would be great.
Also, you don't necessarily need the newest version. Personally, I'd look into Access 2000 - it's been around long enough now that a majority of the bugs have probably been fixed - at least there is enough experience in forums such as this one to help you if you run into any snags.
When it comes to Microsoft software, newest is NOT best.
