Excel functionnality in Acces

P: n/a
I am currently using excel to manage a small database. The problem is
my database is getting big and I need more then the 65000 lines excel
can have.

I have considered access but it lacks some important built-in features
from excel. For exemple:

- Easily Add multiples similar entry with incremental numbers or lets
say the same line 40 times.
Ok lets say I have somes book numbered 1 - 500. Currently I don't know
how to add this easily in acces.
- Add colors easily: Only way it seems possible is by code. Though it
could be a good idea.
- Display Conveniency
MS Excel seems to have a better front end then Access.
Maybe I just don't know how to use acces in this case I would
appreciate a help as to where I could find info to do what I want
Else is there a software that could fill my needs for such a database.

In fact what I need is something usefull to enter data and to display
it. The database format itself is not really important.
Thx in advance for your help
