I think a variation on this theme will work well. I will start coding the backend of a small database (e.g. stockroom) with postgres, to learn how it works. At the moment I am a bit scared at the magnitude of the task, so a small database will give me opportunity to experiment with types etc. As I have questions, I will ask here.
I will then experiment with various front ends. One of which will be dabo, as Glenn suggests. Meanwhile maybe someone here will offer up a holy grail I hadn't thought of.
If nothing else is suitable, I will continue with access - either 97 or 2003. I do like the pivot table/chart feature that it has, that functionality would be excellent for dabo to emulate.
Thanks for all the help, and if anyone has more thoughts on this topic I am all ears. I think I will formulate some questions as to the first part of my project in another email.
