For some years we've used Access at school to hold the data about our
students. We've not liked it, and mainly used it as a flat file for mail
Recently I managed to get the data over to OpenOffice Base, but that has
not been a great success. The trouble is that Base is soooo slow. It
takes ages to scroll to the bottom of a list of students and there are
only about 30 pieces of data (address lines, etc) on each student.
Is Base the right way to go? Or should I do something different. What I
really think that we need is a database sitting on a server somewhere,
which we interact with via a browser from wherever we want.
Does this show I know nothing about databases? Probably! But any advice
would be appreciated.
