The skinny is corporate will not allow MySQL or anything else other than what we already have... IIS and the MSSQL server is off limits according to the IT guy, and a hosted solution is out of the question. In essence:
If it was up to me, it would've been LAMP a long time ago, but its a no go.
All we have left is Access... The only thing that we'll be doing is row inserts. No queries (except at the end of the day for reporting), no updates, just inserts on a form with maybe 12 fields.
