Libre Office can, in fact, work with a read database backend like MySQL. But it does certainly have the option of keeping all your data in a simple local file.

The problem with it, after something like Access, is that its user interface is hard to learn and doesn't have the features of Access.

You might be better off with something like Cardbox which has been around since the days of DOS, when it was very simple but still quite powerful and useful. It's much more sophisticated now and runs on any Windows (2000/XP). Cardbox was recently repriced from £199 to FREE !
