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 techniques
but falls short of being a fully object-oriented development tool.
