I had at your post earlier and then decided not to put my tuppence in.

But I will now.

This is what I found click here

Although I once wrote an Access DB, SQL type stuff was way beyond me. The VB was OK, by trial and error. Dunno what your level of expertise is.

===========
Now...I just happened to see my OpenOffice splash page and I see there is a Database there too.

click here Maybe it is similar to MS Works?

===========
Also check this general site's Categories (Office, Programming, Lookup etc)
But they don't have much re databases (just cardfile)

Hi and thank you for your interest

My level of interest is on a par with the Data base prog from MS works and I have used it for last 9 years for phone numbers and such like .

But now I have ventured into the world of Windows7 and it does not like MS works data base although it accepts MS spread sheet and 'word'

So at present I am playing with the 'table' item in 'word'

Thank you again for your contributions

Best wishes

I have MS Works 9.0 (2007) which came included with my 1 yr old Compaq laptop (W7 Home)

It seems to run OK.

If you have problems with yours you could try running it in XP Compatibility mode.

Right Click C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Works\wksdb.exe or wherever the program is located for you.

Select Properties/Compatibility tab
Check the box for Run this program in compatibility mode for...Select XP.

See if that helps.

Hi Gel, I use the Open Office Data Base for Address Book, CD Index, DVD Index etc and find it very easy to handle and quite good on sorting information.
