    Hi all, I need to create a database now for my business. I am not vastly experienced and would like it to be fairly easy to use.
    I have created my own in excel to reference different bits and bobs but too much knowledge is required for me. At the moment I have records in excel as seperate workbooks of our employees, our invoices, our projects, our materials etc.
    Would it be possible to have a database with different filetypes etc, as what I do is export from excel into indesign and then print (for invoices etc). I wonder if it will be possible for a decent database that would combine the lot so to speak or am I asking too much?
    Any recommendations for decent database programmes, do they require massive skill?

    Have a look at Filemaker and its output via XML to InDesign.
