What is the best option out there, in the way of databases, for me to use that fit the following criteria? 1) free 2) simple to learn and implement (from a non-programmer standpoint) with about a 2 day "grace" period for getting up to speed 3) able to capture around 70k data elements and run without issues 4) ability to query and produce basic reports I am in a situation where I need to find an application with the above criteria and I figured I may as well ask the experts because I'm in a bit over my head. I have looked at Oracle Express, MySQL, MS Access, and LyteRAD. I can't say that I trust this LyteRAD program to be all that great, but I see the other options as being difficult enough for a non-programmer to learn, and I'm not even sure if MS Access can handle all that much and still function. I could really use you guys' help and I really appreciate it. Thanks for reading.
