Hi Neil,

Have you tried yet? It's a complete open source office suite
for Linux
(and other platforms), and it has a component called Base,
which is
pretty much a Microsoft Access equivalent which works very nicely. is part of the official Kubuntu package repository, so
install it and give it
a shot. If not, try searching on Google for a few other programs.


Nobody's ever lost in life...they're merely taking the scenic route.
