Chris Heilmann asked: >>Is there a good open source Database tool out there? >>We have the employee name and up to five categories/sections >>he or she belongs to. Both should be searchable Hi Chris, Que? Those requirements seem kinda light for a pre-packaged app. You might find something like that in a language tutorial or classroom homework project, but then again you might spend more time looking for it that it would take to build. Might be easiest just to whip up a MySQL or PostgreSQL table to hold the data, a screen [form] (in PHP or your flavour du jour) to grab the user input, create the dynamic SQL server-side, pick off the data and display it in a formatted table. I think I'd be more worried about the 'phase 2 requirements' ... cuz once you have this working they'll be back asking for the "other 99% of all possible HR/Payroll/Tax/Training capabilities" for the following week!
