I have designed several databases to run my admission offices over the years using Paradox (I'm dating myself), Alpha4, and Filemaker. For the last several years I have been at schools that have purchased software that was designed specifically for this purpose and usually with the option of integrating with other areas of the school. These include InResonance (Filemaker based), Senior Systems, and Blackbaud. A major factor in an in-house design is the technological aptitude of those who would be using the database. If they are not tech savvy, you will want to create menus and scripts to automate many of the tasks. Another consideration is the legacy of the system. If you or your staff design it, but then move on, that could be a problem. Good luck!

I was thinking about creating an Access Database. Does anyone use access to do this? --- Edtech Archives, posting guidelines and other information are at: http://www.h-net.msu.edu/~edweb Please include your name, email address, and school or professional affiliation in each posting.
