I use MS Access at work but do not have it installed on my home pc. Can I still enter data at my home pc (say using WORD) and then upload the data later to my database at work?

Word isn't designed for this and as far as I know you can't import from Word into Access.
You may be better off talking to your IT department as sometimes they are able to sanction an off-site licence. Ask them, nothing ventured nothing gained.

If you are really desperate, you can type it into notepad. Access has a function that allows you to important data from .txt files so long as there some sort of separator between words (like a space or comma). It'll be a mess to type out though and one missing separator can screw the whole thing up
