Database programs

Ok, we were talking at work about wanting/needing a new DB program (NOT ACCESS) because well Access sucks/doesn't need it to do what we want it to do.

We are looking for a Multi User DB (maybe up to 10 users) with record locking so when one user is on a table/record it locks that so no one can modify it at the time. In access you can modify a record while someone else is using it and that user will be unaware of this at the time if they continue with that table.

I've only used MS Access and IDEA and neither quite fit what we are looking for. Anyone have any other programs/suggestions we might look into?

MySQL for a cheap solution.

Access can work the way you need it to. I had a system in place at a company with over 65 users modifying files. It just depends on how you set up the queries / permissions and how the data is being retrieved. (ie - a form from within Access or using a separate program such as Excel to grab the data - which is what I was doing)
