    Can I import a Excel file to Access file so I can edit the file then resave in Access?

    I have inventory files in Excel but I can only view Excel view 97
    I am trying to avoid having to buy Excel.

    you can import excel data into an access table (need same fields, field data types etc - gets a bit tricky sometimes) or you can import an excel sheet into access and have it create a table (make sure each excel row1 column has a name in it to be used as a filed name, easier than renaming them in access)

    the data can then be edited, saved in the access table, exported as an excel sheet

    perhaps try one of the 'open office' type office suites (was star office, forget the free version name)
    - should be able to read and change excel data
    - access isn't really made for spreadsheet functions alone
