I am looking for an address data base which full fills the following
The current situation:
My mother has a spreadsheet with all contacts who are interested in her
photo exhibitions. Recently she deleted some cells of the spreadsheet
and all the data got mixed up (she didn't delete entire rows, just
certain cells.) Combined with the fact that she has to update several
contact-lists (private, photo exhibition, ...) it seems that a small
contact data base would improve the situation.
I know that for this task several solutions exist, but do you know a
software/data base which is capable of the following:
+) It should be possible to add tags to contacts
+) It should be possible to create a frontend to print out specific
contacts like in a spreadsheet (if there isn't one available).
+) If the mail-client could access this data base, this would be
superb. Right now my parents are using thunderbird, but a switch to
evolution is possible.
Some years ago I created an Access-Data-Base which was used to track the
production of a plant. I remember the possibility to create reports
which just printed out the desired data. The solution should remain as
simple as possible.
Here is the data which should be stored (in addition to phone, email,..)
Name; Tags; Relation
Franz Waldmüller; PhotoExhibition+Private; Family
Maria Spark; PhotoExhibition; Girlfriend of Jack
The tags should be present in order to be able to print out a list for
the photo exhibition or a list of all private contact (note a lot of
people need to have more than one tag)
The relation is used for the contacts of the photo exhibition: To
remember to whom a contact belongs to --> above example: if Maria and
Jack split up, Maria isn't invited any more because Jack belongs to the
family and will come to the exhibition.
Thanks for your suggestions,
