You need to go to Inno's knowledge base, which contains sample scripts.  See this link:

Did you also download one of the GUI's for Inno? There are a couple listed on the main Inno page, and they make working with Inno much, much better.

PDB has given you the link to get the info you need; the VB installation routines are what you should look at, as they will be identical to what you need for Access. The installer will handle versioning, and will determine which files should be installed. NOte that you must often select this option, but it should be self-explanatory once you play around with this software for a bit.

It's been a while since I worked with Inno, but with ANY installer the best way to see if Access is installed is to check the registry keys here:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\<Access Version Here>\Access\InstallRoot

If you have a value in this key, then Access is installed. Access versions are:

10.0 = 2002
11.0 = 2003
12.0 = 2007
