 Headbrk I have information that I want to store the data in HDD.
I would like to access each file/DB by multiple indexes.
MS access was overkill last I looked. Access would be insert/retrieve/logical delete For each index.
Individual Indexes could have null or duplicate values hopefully.
Custom reports of data by one or more indexes...

Can you tell I was mainframe Data Base Administrator. With seven integrated systems.
DB, Data Dictionary, User on the fly access, "Natural" 4th gen mainframe programming language.
Also integrated email and Wan access.

I retired over 20 years ago.
Would love to do similar on PC and iDevice.
Besides helping me find what I want, I realize I need the intellectual stimulation. They are telling me I have to exercise all areas of my brain to maintain multiple abilities. This would also allow system to record/access some areas already degraded.

So suggestions on any part of project are welcome. Data storage, programming languages/tools, cross platform PC/iDevice, interactive internet access.  Etc.

This is a life project. Build small pieces at a time. Do version modifications once one piece stable, add functions modules as able.

This will be a project from now till ????  Would love to find already built pieces and integrate into scope of project. I prefer integration over programming. I need to use other's work.

My local data, family history, image data base Ect.
The local data should be hardest. I'm sure there are already apps to do specific areas.

OK Altered Egos, put your thinking caps on. I bet this is larges request ever made.
Getting just local data in my cloud and access. would be a great first step.
I have PogoPlug Team their most complex cloud backup/access system. I'm grandfathered from ages ago.
RoboForm Anywhere for Internet password protection and form filling. DVD profiler for video DB
printing, scanning, email data/access points/
This is kitchen sink project. Hopefully integrating existing products and Internet / iDevice access.

Thanks for my years of being part of AE. Shoot down wants or systems I have.

When I was working all I used was Access and Excel so I'm probably no help. At home I just use Excel now.
My brain is full. Can I go home now

Thanks excel may be way to go for PC. I never learned it I could always make a private DB at work.
Since I can access all my PC files on iDevices and have app to open Excel it would sole much.
Pogo PC is access to all file photos etc on PC at home.
Dvdprofiler has online browser access and a mediocracy app.
Just knowing how others manage data helps.
