    Tracking training

    Folks,

    I'm checking to see if anyone knows of a program that will help me track the training in my firm (who has had what training, when, etc.). I'm looking for open source freeware. I have found a couple of things out there, but they are web based, and I want something just to help me keep track of it, not an interactive program (i.e., where users sign up on the intranet, etc.). I can build a simple database for this, but thought before I started working on that I would see if anyone here knew of something already available.

    Thanks,
    Tia

    How about a table in a Word document? Or a spreadsheet? What you want depends on the data entry, reporting, and access requirements.

    Re: Tracking training

    I want to be able to manipulate the data fairly easily and not have to enter a lot of basic information more than once, so I think a relational database is best. Like I said, if it looks like no one has already constructed something like this, I will do one myself. But I just didn't want to reinvent the wheel.

    Thanks,

    Try posting your question in Access. someone there may very well have tried to do this before.

    Re: Tracking training

    Very good Idea. <img src=/S/doh.gif border=0 alt=doh width=15 height=15> But I don't think I'm supposed to double post, so is there a way to just move the thread, or should I just go ahead and repost the question in the Access section?

    If you repost in Access, I or another moderator/admin will lock this thread with a link to the new one. That way, visitors to both forums will see your question, but all further replies will be in Access.
