You betcha!!! Thank you so much for replying. LOL! The kids aren't the only ones that are MLD!! I have no idea what a relational database is. I can set up a simple DB. I can sort it. I can query it. I can filter it. I can format the fields to show the right kind of data [eg currancy, number, text etc] - But that 's it. I don't know how to do anything else. I've had no training on databases myself, and there's no one in school to show me. Please bear in mind that it is just a one hour lesson. I'm not sure if the kids actually have any recipes yet [though i would hope so!] - and that it takes them a very long time to type in the records.
