Making an invoicing database in Access, need assistance?

Asked by HeNkiSdaBro (392points) June 12th, 2008

I am trying to build a copy of this following site online

Excuses for the Swedish language. If you want to help out, feel free to login on that page with demo/demo as username/password to see what it is. It is a database app for keeping track of and send invoices to your customers. I already started creating the different tables inside Access2007, but I was wondering whether some people here on fluther wants to help me out when I run into problems. Maybe I should start building already in MySQL or something instead. Any take on this would be highly appreciated. Feel free to contact me privately, I would love some smart minds to brainstorm together with. Maybe emailing would be a good idea, or maybe even IM. A cool littel team effort would be fun!

That’s pretty cool. I would love to help where I can. It depends on how you want the system to be developed whether it’s a web based application or an application people can install on their computer or something. In either case you’d also want to consider whether you want to use Microsoft technologies or non-Microsoft technologies. For instance with Access databases you could use VB .Net or ASP .Net to integrate your program with them. If you wanted to use Microsoft technologies you could use either Access, MySQL, MS SQL or more. I’m sure with other languages you could connect to different database services but it may not be as easy. But languages like PHP have a great integration with database systems like MySQL. Actually reading back I’m just waffling and it would be much better if we chatted over it like you suggested, as I am definitely interested. Shame I can’t understand the site though, maybe I’ll pass it through google translate sometime :)
