I am currently using MS Office Basic Edition 2003. I need to start an extensive inventory and would like to have Access. Is it possible to upgrade 2003 Office Basic with 2007 Office Pro or would I have to buy the Full Version of Pro.

Thanks for you help.

Better yet, try Open office. It's open source and it's free

My own preference would be to buy a copy of Access (and not necessarily the newest release) and keep Office 2003. I use OpenOffice, which has a database module; although I am not well-versed in the db capabilities, it may very well fit your needs (and is free).

Thank you so much for taking the time for my question. I have considered Base from Open Office, and have even downloaded it. I am not familiar with OO, and am not sure that it is as reliable as Access. My husband has been collecting since he was nine. I need to inventory a huge accumulation and eventually hope it will turn into a business adventure. Would it be as reliable and flexible as Access?
