My daughter's in need of Microsoft access for her homework - she's studying
technology at high school, and she needs Access for coding.  Anyone knows if
liber office should do the job? 

Short answer - no. LibreOffice will not produce Microsoft Access
databases, nor will it allow you to use the same query system, form
designer, or report maker.

LibreOffice can, under certain conditions however, read and write data
to/from MS Access databases, but anything your daughter manages to build
in the way of queries or forms or reports will not be readable by others
using MS Access.

So, either get her MS Access, or else complain to the high school that
it would be better to teach their students database programming with
freely accessible tools, rather than being locked in to one vendor.
