Tracking staff uniform/stocktake DB


I am not sure if excel will do this or maybe an access database. I am hoping Excel will, as I am not to good with access.

I have been asked to provide a simply 'database' for the uniform lady, so she can do away with paper and keep a better track of what is going on in her uniform store. I will point out at this stage, I am doing this to help her out, not the organisation. As they are tight as a fishes backside.

She wants to record detail like what current stock she has, like a running total. So when she gets new stock in, she can add it, and when she issues stock to an employee, it will adjust.

In total there are only about 80 people in the company, but the company supplies 30+\- items, which can be broken down into 4 major catorgies Mens, Ladies, unisex and safety gear, of course all come in a variety of sizing.

My idea was to have a section for incoming stock, a section for current stock and then a record for each employee with when they requested the new uniform, what date it was issued and what uniform was issued.

What would be a better platform to use Excel or Access. At this stage I dont know which way to turn. Maybe you know of something that has been designed, built and available.

Any help at this stage would be really nice..

Thank you for taking the time to read and comment.

Dont use any such programs myself but there are free downloads available at cnet

may be worth a quick look to see if something fits your needs ?

edit - I assume there are free downloads just came across a link to Word so you may need to check

also found this which looks promising
