I do not believe there is currently any software that fits in with OOo that is directly comparable with ACCESS. StarOffice (Sun's almost-identical-to-OOo offering) does come with a databasing applications, but I have never used it so I cannot really pass comment on it.

It is a shame since, although IMO Access is a nasty piece of software, many people do use it for small-scale databases, and it does (apparently) integrate nicely with other MS-Office products.

If, however, you are using Access as a stand-alone application (ie you're not using it in conjunction with other MS-Office applications) then you could always try running it under WINE/X-Over Office.

Hi,

visit http://mdbtools.sourceforge.net; it's so far the best I've seen.

There's also Rekall, which is really a front-end to a SQL database of some type (MySQL, PostgreSQL, ODBC, etc.)

It may be able to give you the type of interface you're looking for.
