Question Looking For Information On Databases

Hi everyone. I'm definitely new to this, but joined the forum because I saw some comments on Databases. I've been told that Maximizer is a good database for my needs, but am curious as to whether anyone has used it. I'd like to know how intuitive it might be.

The work I'm doing is for a not-for-profit foundation designed to help entreprenurial women. We need to track donors, participants in our seminars and courses, board members, and foundation supporters. What we will input is their contact information, possibly pictures, enrolment, registration, donations, progress on projects, progress through course work, budget, costs, etc.

Can anyone help?
Sheila

I have no experiences with Maximizer, but I know the most wide used database on the internet is MySQL, it's free and powerful, works very well with PHP and other program languages such as C or Java.

I haven't worked with Maximizer so I can't comment on that, but it sounds like you could accomplish everything you want with the OpenOffice equivalent of Mircrosoft Access...it's open source so there are no costs involved with that part - however it's not an open it up and use it solution. You would have to find a template or set it up to make it do what you want it to. However, if you have small budget then you could easily hire a VA to do the initial set up so that all you have to worry about is getting the data into your system.

Hope this helps
