Microsoft Access is a
relational database management system that comes packaged
with the Microsoft Office Professional suite. At Geckodb,

platform to work with because of its flexibility, compatibility
and the fact that it is relatively cheap to set up and
days many Australian businesses use Microsoft Office as
their software of choice for the day to day running of their
business needs. So for us it makes perfect sense that MS
Access would be the ideal database management system for
small to medium businesses. Lets take a look at some of the reasons that
