I have a 13 inch Macbook, Aluminum, from late 2008 running Mac OS X 10.8.2. 

 

Which version of Bootcamp should I use to run Microsoft Access? 

 

Also,  Will this model only support a 32-bit version of Windows 7?

    A Late 2008 Aluminum MacBook is only compatible with 32-bit WIndows editions, so you will have to install the 32-bit Windows 7.

     

    Microsoft Access will work perfectly with Windows 7. Microsoft Access is included on Microsoft Office suite, so if you haven't purchased it, you have to purchase it. Also, maybe you don't need Boot Camp, so it's better a virtual machine for your uses. See > https://discussions.apple.com/docs/DOC-3321

     

    If you want Boot Camp only to run Access, use a virtual machine instead

    yeah using virtualbox or wmware player (both free programs) is a much faster and easier way to run access

    then bootcamp

    in a virutal machine you don't have to restart the computer every time you need to run access
