Is the problem with license that the developer doesn't want to pay the
license?  If I remember correctly you can "compile" the MS Access
application into an MDE file and then distribute that file with the free,
run-time only MS Access.  Is that right?  I've not tried it because all of
my applications run on systems here at work and we have a site license to MS
Office Pro 97 which includes Access.

		This is what I've been doing with a personal project at
home.  Since I do a
		lot of development in Access but wanted to give PostgreSQL a
try.  The big
		problem with using Access is paying for the license.

		How about a good BASIC & PostgreSQL combination to give you
something along
		the lines of Ardent's UniVerse?  Anyone?

		I've got several applications where I use a PostgreSQL
database running on a
		Linux server with a MS Access front end application running
on the
		individual PCs.  It was pretty painless to build, although
knowing something
		about Access would have been nice, and it provides a nice
user interface for
		the individuals that enter the data.  Then I have Perl CGI
scripts written
		on the server to provide read only reports to the web site.
