    I am starting my own workplace and need some software. I need something that will keep track of all the customers information. These are the fetures I need.

    -Main program screen shows basic (my) company information. It Also must have a list of all the clients. Clicking a name will bring up the following database.
    -Main screen may just show their name, adress, how much they have paid, and how many times I went there.
    -Then there would be a section where I keep track of thier computer problems and what was done to fix it.
    -Then another section that can keep all scanned, PDF or whatever programs format, Documents related to them.
    -Guess what, annother section that would keep all e-mails to and from the client.
    -Must have a place that shows all billing activity.

    I am sure there is more I would want it to do but don't know right now. It must be customizable on all sections. Every section should have a clickable link to the other sections or tabs on the side. I have been unable to find anything on the net that does all of this. I do have Acess but dont know if it can do all of this and I dont know how to use it. If it can then its time teach myself.

    Thanks,
    -Del

    Hey Del,

    Well, you are definately on the right path. What you need to do is create your own little database. Yes, you are right, Access is a pretty decent program, however, you can use Dreamweaver is you want to create an online database.

    If you are looking to keep the info private which I am assuming that you are, you might want to consider using Access.

    But if you are looking for software other that MS Access, I searched google and found this:

    Hope this helps you well on your way!

    ;)
