Thanks for all the replies. The reason I am mentioning Access is b/c I
work in a medical department where we use only Access b/c we really
don't need the large data capabilities of MySQL and the databases were
created many years back in Access 2000, which serves our needs fine.
But since I am new to ROR and am interested in building my own
applications, I will look into MySQL.
For the question #2 below (which I am pasting below this line)....
2) I also have a non-Access question that I am putting here so I
have to start another thread. I put in the followoing code ("Ruby
script/generate model book")
into the command line to create a model called book....but I get a
RunTime Error. How do I fix this?
...this is from a tutorial I am doing to learn ROR and the tutorial
says to create the model book with the one line code above....but when
I put this into the command interface I get a long RunTime Error.
