    Really, you should be linking Outlook and Access, not Access and Excel.

    You could use Excel for this but I don't really know why you would.

    The issue with using Excel and Access is that the system would have to be entirely internal, and then you may as well just have clients contact you directly and enter the appointments on a calendar.

    There are free online ones. I did a quick Google search and the first one I found was this: http://easyappointments.org/ (no idea how good it is).

    You would still have to pay for hosting a website. That would only be a few pounds per month but you could even get that free if you're willing to have adverts placed on your pages.

    Be aware that if you haven't set up something like this before then there would be a bit of a learning curve, and you would probably want to focus more of your time in setting up the salon. My advice would be to have clients contact you directly initially then set up a system like this when you have more time.
