    During college days our batch collected data of all in the same batch and wanted to build a database. While the database should contain permanent datas like names, dob, fav things n stuff. There should be a coloumn where present contacts can be added.
    Could someone help me decide which language i could use so that i can achieve. If any have played Football manager, i was looking at something like that. I believe that uses XML. But what should i use as database.
    The main thing of all i have no depth knowledge in any programming but being a computer graduate jus know the basic.
    Pls help.

    I wouldn't get to complicated with this and use something like MS ACCESS. Really a simple excel spreadsheet would get you started. Seems there was a sample database that did this??

    If you Google 'contact freeware' you may find something ready for you to use. No reason to re-invent the wheel.

    Depends on your needs.
    Do you need multiple users to access the data?
    If more then just you, does everyone have access to the same shared drive or computer? Or should they be able to access it from any computer connected to the Internet?
    How many records are you dealing with?

    i dunno much about database programming decision , but all i know is that u have to be accurate of the size of the DB in this way ...

    if ur DB wont exceed some hundreds of data , then u would use any simple file systems
    if ur DB will be in the range of 1000 to 30,000 of data , u may find Access or any similar database better for u ...
    if ur DB would be of range 50k to 500k ... then mySQL and SQL Server is ur solution ...
    more than that -- > its time for Oracle i think ...

    (all ranges r 90% estimated , but i'm sure of the "Order" )
