Creating a Database

I noticed a few posts on the Rhodec Bulletin Board discussing the options for making a database. I had the same issue when I started and was horrified at the thought of spending $300 on a program. I once worked at a medium-size business with 7 employees that used Access as their working database and it was very successful - particularly because as the business grew the database could be changed to suit their needs. So I've created my database (with quite a lot of swearing and frustration!) and I thought I would offer a few tips on how it was achieved to make it a little easier for someone else.

It was much too long to put up in a post and you can't see the screen shots properly but if you email me ( I'll send you the full word doc.

Please let me know if you have any trouble, I'm happy to answer questions. Here's a little pic of my database to help you get inspired:
