So, this begs the question, where can a guy like me go to learn enough about Oracle to properly implement this script? Are there any tutorials out there on setting up and creating your first oracle database? /chris -----Original Message----- Hey Chris - there's a sql script to create all the tables in the tar file. Right now, we're based on Oracle and thats what the script is.. We've actually hada couple people wondering if there were SQLserver scripts too, but we don't have them ATM.. it wouldn't be *too hard* to convert the script to different DB's, but evolt relies on the work our members provide, and so far, no members have stepped up to create them. of course, you or anyone else is welcome to give it a roll :) shout if you have any more questions :) .djc.
