Our company is poised to purchase a few new laptops. In the interest of saving a few dollars on software, I would like to know if i could get away with downgrading from Office Pro to Office Business Suite on each laptop. The problem is that i don't know whether i can run word and excel VBAs which query an access database using machines that don't have MS Access.
Putting it another way: Is it possible to successfully run a word vba on a machine that has office business suite (which does not come with MS Access) and use the DAO to connect to and pull info from an existing access database?
I'd appreciate some input...thanks!
