    Training databse

    Hi all,

    I have been asked by my manager to create a training database for the training department, in which language would you guys recommend to do it: e.g. Access, MySQL with PHP, VB.Net etc.

    Regards,

    The Database Management System you choose is dependent on many factors. How many people will access it concurrently? Is cost a concern? Do you already have expertise in a DBMS? What is the ultimate use of the database? Is it going to be imbedded in another appplication?

    Well the database should be on it owns not linked to any systems, 2-3 people will use it, and it will only be used to add staff training details, I need to get more details from the users, currently there is a database in access 2000 format and it is linked to a payroll system. That data has to go on the new designed database I can use anything I want any language any package etc.

    Thanks again,

    As between ASP+Access, ASP+SQL Server, ASP.Net+SQL Server, and PHP+MySQL, the latter three offer an advantage in performance if the database will be hosted on a separate machine. If all the components are on a single web server, it may be best to use what's familiar to you. Especially if there isn't time or money allotted for learning/buying new technologies.
