hi,

well yes, the latest openoffice.org (2.0 beta) does include 'Base', which is similar in look / feel to Access, but as of now, i don't believe it can work with Access / Microsoft Jet databases..

For cross-platform use, might it be worth looking at something like MySQL, with ODBC connectivity to OpenOffice or MS Access as required?
