    Microsoft access is a database management software that comes in a big package from Microsoft called office.. You can buy this package for alot of money though, and access can help you create a database to keep records for everything in your website, and you can use to store data and to make active server pages that people can interact with and store info, like answer.yahoo.com it uses a kind of databases similar to access but extremely bigger and more advanced..

    I hope this made a little clear for you. But i advise you to start with access on small projects maybe a store management application or something, then when you get good at it, and you understand how XHTML and ASP work you'll be able to use access in your websites..

    Good luck

    MS Access is a database program that you can use to create a database-driven website. In fact, frontpage will create a database for you in a new folder on the site labelled fpdb. First create a form on an .asp page, then have Frontpage create the database from the form. It will automatically create the database connection, too. You can find that file, ending with .mdb, in the folder mentioned above and open it to see the data structure. You can either fill in that data through Access or through your new form page from a browser. Then you can create a page or set of pages to display the records from that database. There are great tutorials on www.frontpagetalk.com.

    MS Access is a relational database manager that can manage it's own databases or act as front end for MS SQL Server back end. It provides most of the tools needed to develop a database application, forms, query builders, reporting, scripting and more. As a stand alone product you can use it for simple personal mailing lists or more complex personal multi office inventory management system. You are limited only by your imagination and your experience working with SQL and relational databases.

    Access is a database application that allows you to store data. A practical application would be storing your customers information. Access is a simple database and is not intended for enterprise use. For high-end database needs, you go with SQL Server.
