We have been using dbase4 in our workshop for all our database requirments for the last 12 years. for example our stores management, finances, salaries, challans, quotations etc. Now i want to upgrade to open source software, but i am quite unsure as to whether "mysql" will fulfill all my requirments. We have done a lot of programming in dbase IV to suit our requirments. Is MySQL as powerful as dbase when concerned with programming features. We have about 15 pc's in our lan and we dont need the internet features provided by mysql. My primary requirment is a decent frontend for database & relatively easy programming . Also i am quite frustrated with CLI of MySQL. Please help!!!
