While Excel is a perfect tool so long as your data can be maintained in simple lists, the moment you have to manage more complex data or make frequent changes in the data, you are better off using the Microsoft Access database. Of course, you may still need to exchange data between Excel spreadsheets and Access database to conveniently present some data or till all the data is managed in Access. Excel spreadsheets are great to manage databases that can be maintained in the form of lists. For example, a database of the CDs or DVDs that you have is probably easily maintained in Excel. On the other hand, small and medium enterprises may need to maintain records of customers, sales and product inventory. Not only is the data more complex requiring frequent changes but you may often need to combine data from different sources. Microsoft Access is a wonderful database tool that can be used for small databases as well as fairly large databases. It is easy to build the databases and modify the data in Access. Further, there are powerful features built in Access that help it to protect the data in databases and carry out an Access recovery when the need arises.
