Its hard to compare the two. They both are excellent in what they do.

Hi Frankie12

I have always used Access for database issues and Excel for spreedsheet applications. The two never crossed for me. I would rate both very good for what they do. I use Excel for my software config listings, milage reporting, and staff listings. I use Access for workstation inventories, and parts inventories.

I didnt vote as you are not comparing apples to apples here. Excel is a spreadsheet while access is a database.

.......And it is "Excel"

A spreadsheet is primarily designed for the construction of complex mathematical structures and analysis, a database for storage and retrieval of large amounts of data in the form of records. Thus, which is "better" actually depends on what you need to do.

Thanks for the input. I do know that each program is used differently and that may cause it to make a hard choice to vote.
