    Unanswered: Looking/editing for a database !!!!

    Hi,

    I'm looking for a database which i can use for my business...
    I've been looking for ages and find "Noorderwind" or "Northwind Traders"...

    Now i can use this database, but since there are so many things that i don't use, would it be easier to make my own or edit Northwind Traders for my own things.... Does anyone knows how i can edit (simply deleting and editing lines) this database????

    Or does anyone have a good example for what database i can use???
    Or another programm???

    These are the things that i need to use it for...
    - Workers
    - Check-in form
    - Notes with date and stuff like that
    - Problems form,
    - Contacts,

    And much more.... There are just to many thing i need it for....


    I hope this is enough info for you guys to work with.... Please...

    Thanks in advance

    You will almost certainly have to hire yourself a consultant to build you something bespoke or see if you can find an off the shelf product(s) that meets most of your requirements.

    In your local area - you'll want to sit down and have consultations with them.

    With lots of study. Database development in almost an art. Start with googling "Database Fundamentals"?

    Alternatively, talk to a consultant. Surely one in your area will be willing to give you some good advice... ring around.

    I'd offer my services in such a field. You can check out my website for details on an Access development consultant if you like

    If you were local to me, I'd be offering my services ^^

    thanks, but i'm from belgium, so i surpose that would work....
    I know a little of it, and i'm not wanting to pay hundreds of dollars to a database.... Not that i mean with your service... but with any other consultant....

    I just want to download or make an easy to use, but efffective and powerfull database.. Like Northwind, but then with some other stuff in it...

    I wasn't necessarily promoting MY services, but promoting the use of a LOCAL developer.

    Try searching the Internet for "microsoft access" and some keywords of what you want the database to do. Maybe you'll get lucky and find exactly what you need, which still isn't clear.

    At the end of the day, I believe you will either need to study how to write your own database or you'll have to pay a developer to do it.

    Good luck with it
