    Quite simple - Time.
    Time could be spent on other things of greater importance to the university. We are looking for a ready built Access database that we could then fully customize. If you know of one great, otherwise your answer doesn't help, but thanks kindly anyway.

    Also reasonably simple - Requirements.
    What do you want this database to do?

    This might be exactly what you are looking for. Check out this Freeware called SoftCat. http://www.fnprg.com/softcat/ Not only is it free, but if you take a look at the Access database file used by the program, you'll have a good set of tables on which you can base your own Software Inventory. You'll want to add referential integrity, etc. but softcat is a good start for your own, or you may decide simply to use SoftCat.

    FWIW
