Welcome to the new db forum.

Please put all topics related to databases here. Please be sure it is db related and not code related. If it is really about PHP, Perl, or .NET, then use those forums.

This is *really* good news I have always been in a dilema to which forum to post my db questions either the php or microsoft related forums.

Which may instigate the question of "what is a database"... Our own database is net concerned with either PHP or any Microsoft software. Rather it is an ASCII flat file system with proprietory indices accessed by an HTML front-end through CGI scripts written in Perl (just to wet appetites).

I guess that would qualify as a "database" in the broad sense of the word, but don't expect a lot of people to be able to help you with it.

Generally speaking, a database would be some type of RDMS software (such as mySQL, postGreSql, Access, Filemaker, Oracle, MSSQL) which can access data through standard SQL queries.

But that's generally speaking.

Generally.
