    I need to purchase Access for home. Looking at the box in the store, the
    requirements to use the upgrade states that the user will need ONE of the
    listed applications. I have MS Works 7.0 on my laptop; which is one of the
    applications listed on the upgrade box. Does that mean I do not have to have
    a previous version of Access to purchase the Upgrade Access 2003? If so,
    does the Upgrade version have all the functionality of the "full" version of
    Access 2003? Thanks.

    Correct. Your version of MS Works on the list of all qualifying products
    for the upgrade version of Access 2003 on the following Web page:

    Yes. It does. The only downside to installing an upgrade version is that
    you must keep the qualifying product in order to reinstall the upgrade again
    at a later date, should the need ever arise. Usually this means that having
    the original CD of the qualifying product handy when the upgrade is installed
    is sufficient, but with older products the qualifying product needed to
    actually be installed on the computer. I don't think you need to worry about
    Access 2003 needing to have Works 7.0 installed, though.

    After you install Access 2003, install MS Office 2003 SP-1 for the bug
    fixes, but you may want to hold off on installing SP-2 because it won't allow
    you to edit linked Excel spreadsheets, should you also have Excel installed
    on your computer.

    Both assertions are correct: Works 7.0 will let you buy the upgrade
    version, and that version is exactly the same as the full-price
    version; only the pricing differs.
