First off, I've never worked directly with a database program. I want to learn some basics for use at home (basic tracking of financial info, etc), exporting to Excel for creation of charts, etc. Does anyone here work with Databases for home-use? What database program do you use? and more importantly ... is it free? I've starting reading about MySQL, but I'm not sure if it's more than what I need???
I have a week off at Christmas and am hoping to learn how to create and use databases. Sounds like fun ... right
