I would suggest talking to an ESRI sales rep (reseller) explaining your situation. I managed to get a decent solution (not cheap, but bearable).

Many thanks for the reply.

ESRI UK have quoted me 13,995, 6,995 & 1,495 GBP for Arc Info, Editor and View respectively. I would need to add 20 per cent sales tax to these prices.

I need the ability to create layers and to convert between formats, so I believe I would need ArcEditor as a minimum. To continue with my previous analogy, ArcEditor would cost me the equivalent of about 10 monthly home mortgage payments and ArcInfo close to 20. Forgive me, but these are fantasy prices, and I would think my self reckless to spend this amount of money when viable alternatives (though admittedly not as good) exist. I could seek to obtain a keener price from a sympathetic reseller, but next year's maintenance fee would constantly be looming on the horizon. No, I would do better to invest my money and time in something that will be sustainable.

It was a nice dream while it lasted, but I'm afraid it's over.

Many thanks for the advice I have received from all.
