Re: does this page make sense?>DB


Yeah, he had all different kinds based on the same layout but for more specific types of plants. Certainly the more specific ones could be used in the same way the broader Plants db is used; you just decide what your labels actually mean. The main one I intend to change (whether the software allows the label to be changed or not) will be the field labeld "Number of Specimens". I intend to put hardiness zones in that field.

I also thought there might be a chance to change the URLs for the links to Australian sites. I'd like to put MOBOT and RHS on instead. But if I can't it's no big deal.

And, I may give MS Access another try one of these days. I have been spoiled by Corel products that are so much more intuitive than MS (exceptions is MS Publisher and Powerpoint, each of which I find easy to figure out). The projects I wanted to do in Access were so much more easily accomplished in Corel applications that it was just a hassle fighting with MS.

has tons of this stuff for any kind of collecting.

I tried MS Access years ago and couldn't figure it out. This database I
bought has a nice layout despite being preset for Australia:

or just go to ebay and plug in

in the search box
