I know this is going to sound crazy, but I have never built a web database, or even a website. I am a hardware guy mostly. But non-the-less I was hired to build web databases and have to teach myself. I have googled it and even that hasn't helped me out yet. Too much info to scan through to find what I need. I am hoping that someone can point me in the right direction. What software do I need, ect...? I think some software requires programming knowledge, and most of my programming experience is out-dated. Please help me. My first job starts on the 22nd, and that is for a hospital.

Hey dhitchner,

I'm not an expert on this, but this is what i know.

There are multiple ways to create a database on the web. You can store a database in many ways: txt file, comma separated value files, excel files, etc. Concordantly, there are many softwares out there that will help you import/export data from your databse: Microsoft Acess, PostgreSQL, PHP/MySQL, Oracle.

I'm guessing you are going to store patient information (Name, Address, DOB, HMO, Appointsments, etc. ) in this databse. I would recommend looking into Microsoft Access since it comes with most versions of Microsoft Office. Also, Access probably has the least programming requirements and just like the rest of Office has a neat little 'Help' Section.

So make sure the computer at the hospital has Access installed and google some Acess Tutorials.

If anyone else has anything to add please do so. Hope it works out for you. :tazz:

He's right... And Microsoft has quite a few pre-designed Templetes on their site


Do a Search for Access Database Templetes..

Hope this helps you.
