    Access collection of files and folders?

    Is there a good way to let Access be the database for collections of files and folders (on a Windows PC) that would organize projects and give information about the files. When I say information I mean description, progress(check in & check out duration of work, and timers), and location. I think this would help us with organizing our projects and knowing what file is the current one we should be working on when we have many. A while ago I was working in FileMaker and noticed that one of there template options said "Collection of Files". So I want to know does anyone have any experience with using Access in this way? I need 'where to start' help.
    Thanks

    A relational database can document anything you want, including files and documents. If this is more a project management requirement, there might already be OTS applications that will accomplish that.
