Can anyone recommend a simple database for a small shop?

Evening all.

OH needs a simple database for his computer repair shop where you can put things like customer details, enquiries, sales, etc.

Is there a way to get one for free? Such as a program to download or something (preferably not one where you have to make it from scratch)

I have had a look round Google but can't find something which sounds like what we're after

Would be much appreciated, thanks

Your husband should quit the computer business if he's getting his wife to ask such questions on a shopping forum...

Fully relational database running on a medium-sized web farm running Microsoft SQL Server 2008. Incremental backups and prune the transaction log say.. weekly?

SQL Server express (free) and knock a v.quick front end up using vb.net express (free).

lot more robust than Access

Thanks everyone, appreciate your suggestions. :)

Just because someone can repair all kinds of computer problems, does not neccessarily mean they have to be clued up on which is the best database to use, same way that someone who can make computer programs may not know how to repair hardware problems

Was just after suggestions oO

Think what people are getting at is, if hes supposedly able to repair the vast range of faults on a pc which even the best engineers have to consult google at times etc, then he would know how to google or search a tech forum for a database proggy, rather than his missus asking on a shopping site?:p

Or is it one of them 'check my husbands new venture out' posts? if so just say :)

Sorry, I thought the title was "simple database", not "best database". My mistake.

Mrs Z I can whole heartedly recommend spiceworks for this job as well as many other tasks your like to use, such as asset management, ordering, customer database etc.

Try it, it's free, simply download and put on to a windows box.

It is designed as a helpdesk management tool, but it works for so much more.

Use moneydance for financial, brilliant as we are using it. You can either pay or get it for free lol...
