    Need VERY SIMPLE database software - relational

    I need a VERY SIMPLE database program.

    ALL I want to do is enter data into a table, sort and edit it as needed, then print to file based on specified words and columns in the order requested.

    I am a novice. Have been using PFS File for years but it is a DOS program and has limitations that don't allow me to use it for my current project.

    Would prefer FREE but will also consider VERY low cost.

    Thank you.

    I've been playing lucidchart for a while. I mainly use it to draft out my ERD but it can actually export to code for your selected DBMS. It's free for your 1st three projects:

    I usually use PostgreSQL and often use pgAdmin for a more visual representation of my database. It's open source and free:

    Not certain of tools for other management systems outside of PostgreSQL. I'm sure there are many but I don't know them off the top of my head.

    Hope this was helpful

    Microsoft Access is less than $100. It's a complete package - RDBMS with programmable GUI - easy to install, easy to learn. I am still using Access 2010. I also have SqlServerExpress with SqlServer Management Studio. Available free but much more difficult to install, learn, use and does not include a GUI.

    Depending on amount of data, maybe a spreadsheet is all you need.

    What do you mean by 'print to file' - what type of file? Data is already in a file (RDBMS or spreadsheet).
