Microsoft Access Through Boot Camp
Naturally, as most recent Mac users be well aware of it is also possible to install Windows through the already built-in Boot Camp. It comes on your Mac OS X install disc upon purchasing the operating system, no extra costs besides the Windows OS are required. Although this might be an obvious advantage, you will find the disadvantages of running Access through this method outweigh this gain, as they are plentiful.
First of all, you will have to close down OS X to reboot into Windows, which can be a tedious process. Especially when you have to read a single Access document or make only a small adjustment, this process can greatly impact your work-flow. Furthermore, you will not be able to interact with Mac applications, and copying or comparing between software is not done. Although it may be the native and free option available, it does not outweigh the integration you can achieve with a virtual machine.
Using Microsoft Access can most certainly be a realistic option on a Mac Pro when you know where to find the right software. Although nothing can beat using Access on a Windows system natively, for Mac users this is the next best thing and a method that has been and still is constantly improving. With these things in mind there is only one conclusion to the question whether you can use Access on a Mac Pro? The answer is yes and even comfortably!
