    I run a small business, and want to keep information about each of my clients in a searchable database.

    whats a really simple but effective winXP program that i can use?

    ive got office XP, but have never ventured further than excel and word!!

    thanks

    Well Ms Excel and Ms Access are the best i know...
    Acsses i dont know how to use, but Excel is great once you figure it out completely, try searching google for guides.

    hmm, excel is not really what i am after. It is a very powerful tool...and i use it for other purposes

    I am after something that works a bit like outlook, where you can have a full page of information like a 'business card' for each clilent, and can search for information like their name, phone number, address, general information about them, date they contact you...that sort of thing..

    Access is quite good. it has some good wizards to help you get started and setup some simple databases

    Access is also very powerful, believe it or not.
