    No. He either needs a fully licensed copy of Access or the Runtime version of
    Access. The former would cost him between 100 and 200 dollars and the latter
    would cost *you* even more than that.

    There are developer packages that allow a you to provide a royalty free version
    of Access to the users of your apps. This makes financial sense if you have
    dozens of users, but not for just a handful.

    there isn't a free alternative database application that allows one to
    open an Access database "as if it were Access." However, if you just
    want
    to play with the data, then you can do that not only from Access, but
    from
    any other application or script that can manipulate Jet databases, such
    as
    Excel (or a VBScript if your OS supports Jet, such as Windows 2000 or
    XP).
    If you need to manipulate Access objects, such as forms and reports,
    then
    you'll need a retail copy of Access installed on your computer. If you
    just
    want to do data entry, but not alter the design of Access objects, then
    you
    may use the Access Runtime version. Some Web sites on the Internet
    offer
    the Access Runtime version for download, along with their MDB
    databases.
    Access databases are available for studying ship iceberg collisions,
    managing forests and land usage, et cetera. Perhaps you are in one of
    these
    categories? If so, then installing the Access Runtime allows one to
    open
    other MDB files for that Access version (and previous versions), too,
    and do
    data entry. For links to a few of these Web sites, please see the
    "Access
    Runtime versions" section of the following Web page:
