I'm looking for a database app that's relatively simple to use but powerful enough to handle my task... sometimes mutually exclusive criteria, I know. I'm trying to create a database to handle employee information, training scheduling, and equipment inventory for a medium-small Sheriff's Office. Employee information is simple; I'd also like the ability to 1) enter equipment, including consumable items, uniforms, and duty gear and 2) issue that equipment to employees and track it who has been issued what, as well as return those items to inventory when they're returned by the employee. Training would require a table of classes that can be offered and a way to sign employees up for those classes, to track how many and which employee is attending a class. Oh, and I'd also like a pony. In itself, not too complex a database. I'm not a db guru by any stretch of the imagination, but we don't have an IT staff and very little money in the budget, so if I want it I'll have to create it myself. I've tried Bento, but you can't search across related tables in Bento- if I want to search to see who was assigned Glock Serial# ABC123, I can't. So... looking for suggestions for a db program that's a little more powerful than Bento, but as easy to use.
