I don't think Gnome-Office (which has abiword and gnumeric) includes a database program like Access or Paradox or Approach. However, both OpenOffice.org and LibreOffice do. The equivalents in these programs are:
Writer = Word
Calc = Excel
Base = Access
Impress = Powerpoint
As nicdm mentioned, LibreOffice is packaged in Gslapt, so it is very easy to install.
For the latest or for localized builds (IE, in a different language) of either LibreOffice or OpenOffice.org, see this post
(it's easier to just use Gslapt, though).
