Professional edition has IIS, file encryption and more administrative tools. Thats about it.

Have you read the comparisons on Microsoft's site?

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/pro/ ... osing2.asp

They offer a guide to choosing also:

Not to be offensive or anything, but the differences between the office suites can be found at microsoft's site. Please do a little research before you post.

Access is database software.

As Sony mentioned, it's generally a good idea to go to the manufacturer/developer's web site and do a search if you are seeking information like product comparisons and high level product descriptions rather than posting your questions in the forum.

www.google.com is your friend.
