    Hi, Guang Zheng.

    > is it true that i must have a server of my own before i can use it?


    No. Microsoft Access is designed to be a desktop database, so it easily
    runs on a Windows-based PC.

    > how do i use the access files on my computer?


    You can use the built-in tools in Microsoft Access to create database
    applications and then run them for data entry and reporting activities. You
    can also use other applications (such as Microsoft Excel or a custom
    executable written in a programming language of your choice) to access the
    data in the tables in the Microsoft Access database. However, it's best if
    you try to get some training, either from a co-worker or a friend who knows
    Access well, or by taking a formal class. You can even study books on your
    own, but it may take longer to learn by yourself than when someone shows you
    how to do all the nifty tricks.

    For a list of links to free Access resources (tutorials, tips, et cetera)
    that will help you learn what you need to know, please see Jeff Conrad's Web
    site:

    If you have questions about Access, please post your questions in the
    following newsgroup, where experts explain answers especially geared to new
    users:

    http://www.microsoft.com/office/com...ft.public.access.gettingstarted&lang=en&cr=US

    If you post questions in the other Access newsgroups, experts will be happy
    to answer them, but most answers you receive will presume that you have at
    least some knowledge and experience with Access (otherwise, you'd be posting
    in the Getting Started newsgroup if you were a beginner), so you may find
    yourself reposting again and again asking for further detailed explanations
    of the answer you were given.

    Access database files are MDE or MDB files. What kind of file are you
    talking about?

    In order to read or edit either file, you need Microsoft Access program
    loaded onto your computer. Do you have Microsoft Access database program
    loaded on your computer? It is part of Microsoft Office Professional but
    not part of most Microsoft Office packages.
