Part II: Things to Do with your iMac  > Make a Simple Database

Chapter 5. Make a Simple Database

A database is like a really fancy recipe card box, like the kind in which you might store recipes, addresses, baseball cards, or dues-paying membership information. But in a database you can do a lot more with the information than you can with the recipe cards.

In this chapter we're going to create a new, blank database to serve as an address book for you. Just follow the steps in this chapter and in a couple of minutes you'll have an address book you can use for years. If you like working in a database, there are several other books that will teach you much more, and you can build directly on the database you create right here. Even without reading anything else, you'll be able to make another database for any other collection of information you happen to have, such as research data, personal possessions, scout troop members, etc.
