A database program lets you keep track of data that is not all numbers. Excel might be better when most of the information is numbers and calculations.
Access 2007, 2010, 2013, and 2016 use a different style of interface than older versions of Access. They put controls for the most common actions on ribbon tabs instead of toolbars.
