Program Recommendations for Larger Data Sets

Hello All

I don't have a question per say but I was looking for recommendations.  I love Excel and Access however I am working with LARGE amounts of data, often over 800,000 lines with as many as 65 columns and my excel and access crash all the time.  Does anyone have any suggestions for programs that have the same functionality as Excel and Acces but can handle more data?  Or even better a way to continue to use excel but get it to function better with more data?

i'd recommend Libre-/Open-Office. I had the same problem with Excel handling large amount of data. While Excel crashed all the time, LibreOffice Calc could deal with it. Since then i work with Calc and can do everything.
