Re: Microsoft Works Database - ''Cannot display End User...
No need to backup anything prior to a System Restore- however, it's always a good idea to have done it on a regular basis anyway. From the error message, I'd say that the license (if not other files) has become corrupted. Since you got the PC second hand, I'd have to say you probably won't be able to use it. Rereading your original message also tells me you've not used it before now (oops!). Is it something you can live without or just wanted to see what the program did? There are always free alternatives to just about any program that is sold- if you're willing to search and go through a bit of a learning curve. Let me know if I can help out more.

I am a Mac User also.
Ran my own Mac repair business for 18 years...
I remember this particular problem with Entourage/Outlook for Mac
I stopped using Outlook & Office years ago because it goes corrupt when too many emails are stored in the email data file. About the 1gb file size. A well known problem. I use Apple Mail these days. Note..It will Import emails from Entourage.
All this data is kept in the Microsoft User Data folder inside Documents Folder... if my memory is correct.
Make a backup copy of this folder if you can... before fiddling.
I used a Microsoft Utility Program called "Microsoft Database Utility" to fix and clean up the Email data file. Then Entourage opened up the email again and I got rid of excessive emails containing photos.
I don't even have MS Office installed on this Mac any more but I have located "Microsoft Database Utility" program which is about 2.3mb in size. It's probably inside your MS Office / Office folder already. Use Apple Spotlight to search or... a free program called EasyFind works great.
Open the program and point it to the Microsoft User Data folder where Entourage email data file is located. To locate the actual email data file...Use "Cmd I" to find size of suspect file. The email data file is a Fairly big one.
I am using a 2007 MacBook Pro running OSX 10.9 Maverics with the free "Pages" for reading Word Doc's & "Numbers" for Excel SS and it all works seamlessly. Dont have a need or want to pay for MS Office anymore as it never got many updates anyhow.
Hope this Fixes your Problem
On Side Subject.... Depending on age of your Mac...You can get Maverics OSX10.9 for free. Download the flu .DMG file. Use CCC (Carbon Copy Cloner from Bombich Software) to do a full Clone Backup of your current Mac HD to another external hard drive before installing new clean OSX 10.9 system then you get asked to Migrate your old system data back and you end up with a new Mac and all your data in place. Get free "MacTracker" to get your specific Mac Specs & what max OS it will go up to.

Make sure you are connecting to the database,then just before you call your sql to insert use an echo statement to display the sql and check it for syntax:-
$sql = 'insert into table1 values('.$no.','.$no.',"block","'.$value3.'", "'.$value4.'")'; echo "SQL ==>" STARTOFSQL<br>".$sql." ENDOFSQL<br>";
