Access 2000 vs Works db

P: n/a
I got about half way through a project using Access from Microsoft Office
when they decided they wanted to use Works instead. I looked at the db in
works and it looks woefully inadequate. I could find no trace of anything to
write macros or even record key strokes. Is it really that limited, or did I
miss something?

You're correct. Works is nothing more than a glorified spreadsheet, with
different views of the data. It is not relational (lacks relationships
between tables), has no subforms, and can't be programmed. It is unsuitable
for anything beyond a basic telephone list.
