Note put in today at the GS-Base review
http://www.donationc...=37655.msg420217#new

I like quick creation of a database, preferably with at least some modest special abilities, codes, well-designed note fields (GS-Base adds tabs so your note field does not get in the way.)  Linking if possible, getting into more than flat file, but often this is not needed.

When you are done, you might export to a web program like AirTable. I am doing that now with an inventory/pricing schema with a few hundred items.  However, I don't want to do the initial entry in one of the web tables.

Your thoughts ?  - Is GS-Base still the winner if you don't want to go to Alpha, Filemaker and Access.
