When you purchase a Microsoft product, you can be sure that your investment will last far into the future. Microsoft is always upgrading their products so you can rest assured that you are not purchasing a product that will be obsolete in the near future.
If your company is growing, one of the benefits of Microsoft Access is that it has upgrade capabilities. If the size of your database is continually growing and your performance starts to suffer, you can easily upgrade to SQL Server along with an Access Data Project (ADP).
Access has the ability to easily import many data formats so that your existing data is not lost. This feature can not only save 100s of hours of input time, but also eliminate potential human input error.
One of the benefits of using Microsoft Access is its Jet Database format (MDB or ACCB in Access 2007) which contains not only the application but also the data in one file. The ability to have the application and data in one file makes it extremely convenient to distribute the entire application to various users who can run the application in disconnected environments.
Microsoft Access is often chosen as the database solution due to the cost benefits.
The database can be backed up to prevent the loss of data.
