Microsoft Access vs Excel
Access Database vs Excel
One of the most common things we see is the use of Microsoft Excel as a database. While Excel is a very powerful tool, is it not meant to be used as a database. Retrieving historical data, form entry of data, mass changes of data and presentation quality reports can all be difficult to accomplish in Excel. Many of these same tasks can be easily accomplished in an Access Database.
If you're already using Excel for common database tasks, don't worry. You're not the first to do that and you won't be the last. The good news is we have a lot of experience taking excel worksheets, importing the data (if possible) into an Access database and creating a robust interface to allow for entry and reporting of that data.

We have a large number of excel worksheets - is it possible to bring them all into Microsoft Access?
That's one of the powerful things about an Access Database. There is no limit to the number of excel worksheets that you could integrate into one Access Database. Getting all that data into one common storage location has many benefits, the least of which will be the ease with which it will be to locate the data you need instead of searching through all your spreadsheets.
