Access is not for beginner or the level above that. Very huge learning
I use Database Oasis. http://databaseoasis.com/ It is very user friendly, I
can created a new database in 30 minuets if I use default font.
Here is a link to down load my Templates.
You can try it for 15 days and download my templates.( no charge) They can
be changed to suit you if you wish. Trial software at
http://databaseoasis.com/ 14.1 M.B. file.
Photos are OLE (Object Linking and Embedding ) other words the photos are
actually in a folder on your computer. IE: My Pictures/ My Iris Photos etc.
As you can see on my one templates I have 5 photos.
I also Have databases in Medication, passwords, phone book, recipes, movie
collection and a iris want list.
Back all up with one click.
This has been the best money I have ever spent on software.
