Can you enter data into an Access database, without Access ins

Thanks for your help!

Does anyone know if the standard version of MS Office contains Access
run-time that allows data to be entered into an Access database (as mentioned
below)?

You can avoid completely the individual Access licenses if you create an
application as an intranet site using ASP. The only required item on the
workstations would be an internet browser. ASP is, however, outside the
scope of this news group. If you are interested, I can show you a time sheet
application I have previosuly created in ASP / Access. That would give an
idea of the possibilities. (For the record: I am not trying sell anything
here).

What was mentioned was "The Developer's Version (known by various
names depending on the Office version...)", so no, the standard version does not
have this capability.

You have to spend some money and an app that is used under the runtime must be
more of a "polished" application so it will require additional work to develop
compared to an app where the user has a licensed copy of Access installed. In
my opinion you do not break even on the investment unless you need to distribute
to at least several non-licensed users. If it's only a few people you are
better off just buying Access for those machines.

All these posts were very useful, thanks.

I think what we'll do is review the difference in cost and ease of
development of just buying Access for everyone with creating an intranet
application instead. We'll decide what to do from there.
