None that i know of though that doesnt mean that it doesnt exist.
Honestly the hassle of trying to make exel and word do what you want it to do on a dayly basis is going to be far greater than the hassle and or expense of having somebody spend a few hours writing a database program for you that will do everything you want very easily just by using programmed commands to click on or boxes to type search terms in. Your staff wouldnt really need to learn access. Just the few commands that would be programmed in to add an item or search for one. That would be far easier on them than looking through a spreadsheet and transferring to word or trying to create a view that works every time they used it.
This is a real fast and dirty database with a couple of cats for pictures. Honestly i recomend having a professional spend a few hours making it nice and neat and easy to use. Its worth the money.
But this is a very quick one that just shows that it can be done. It took me 10 minutes and I really dont work with access much.
