I have been scouring the Interwebs for an existing over-the-counter solution, but so far they have all been quite unable to handle the complexity of classical music, where instead of just having an artist, title, contents and CD data, you need composer, conductor, orchestra, principal artist(s), cadenza composer, different composers on the same CD und so weiter. If anybody knows of such a thing, speak now, or forever hold your peace, because I'll be sure to come look you up if you let me know after I start to roll my own. Laugh | :laugh:

Since it seems certain that I am going to have to roll my own to get some sort of order out of chaos for my 2,000+ classical CDs, I would appreciate any suggestions for a database appropriate to such purpose - anything but Access - not because Access couldn't do the job, but because I am up to here *raises hand to brow* with clients insisting to use Access when the right tool for the job was SQL Server. Still, better then using Excel, I suppose... (yes, I have seen this where any DB would have been a better choice).

Any suggestions of a suitable DB would be most welcome, but being more or less retired now, I will be spending a lot of time looking at the user interface, so something that can be prettied up would be nice. Queries in some flavour of SQL would be nice too.

Suggestions? Pretty please?Rose | [Rose]

Ta everso!
