BUREC Database Download Page

Preparation
  1. Before beginning installation of the database, two items must already be installed on your system:

a)     You must have at least one printer defined on your computer (local or network).  Microsoft Access requires a printer definition in order to display certain reports.

b)    You must have Adobe Acrobat Reader version 4.0 or higher installed on your computer.  Adobe Acrobat Reader is a free software application that is needed to view certain reports in the database.  You can download a free copy from http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html.


Click on the choice that describes you:

1.  I already have Microsoft Access 2000 or higherinstalled on my computer.

2.  I do not have Microsoft Access 2000 or higher on my computer.

 

1.  I already have Microsoft Access 2000 or higher installed on my computer.

If you already have Microsoft Access 2000 or higher installed on your computer, you can take advantage of the smaller download file that contains only the database.  This does not include the Access runtime files and thus will be a much faster download.  If you do not have Microsoft Access 2000 or higher installed on your computer, please proceed to the section titled: I do not have Microsoft Access 2000 or higher on my computer.
