    DB structure help

    Hi, i'm posting here because i'm not sure where else to post.

    I require a little help with the structure of a new database i'm going to design. I have various excel sheets that i wish to create a database for, and i'm not sure about how to go about it.

    I've read up on various relational integrity database structures, buti'm struggling lay out this database in the method that will work.

    I'm going to be using OpenOffice's Base, as this is the only software i have at home, and i'm only really a beginner in what i usually use at work which is access.

    If someone could volunteer a little jump-start for me I would be eternally gratefull

    Thanks

    the point was to give you only an overview so I would know the appropriate section to further post in, so i thankyou for the information.

    Generally, as a begineer you do not want to be flamed into posting in the incorrect section, therefore thats why I started here.

    So thankyou for the information and the curt reply, feeling very welcome right now.
