I need to use Microsoft Access and I have a mac but no one seems to know if it is available on the mac. Can any one please tell me if it is as I need it urgently? If it's not then what else is there that I can use?

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but I was unable to find the ability of having MS Access for OS X. Take a look at this link, it also mentions alternatives. Not very timely I know. But the best I could find. I don't know if those are viable for you.

There are several open source databases that can be used by the Mac, such as MySQL, and OpenOffice.Org now includes in addition to a word processor,a spreadsheet, and a presentation module, a new database module (called BASE).

"New to Version 2, BASE enables you to manipulate database data seamlessly within OpenOffice.org. Create and modify tables, forms, queries, and reports, either using your own database or BASE’s own built-in HSQL database engine. BASE offers a choice of using Wizards, Design Views, or SQL Views for beginners, intermediate, and advanced users."

" For more advanced requirements, BASE supports many popular databases (sic) database natively (Adabas D, ADO, Microsoft Access, MySQL), or any database through industry-standard ODBC and JDBC drivers."


Hope this may help you.
