    Question Database for Mac and Window computer
    I'm looking for a database program that can be used on a Windows computer and a Mac computer.

    I will most likely be using remote desktop via the MB or MBP (or even a pc laptop if I have to go that way) to access the Office windows computer. So I need to make sure there is a database program that can be used on both platforms.

    It needs to be simple to use as well, as I've never yet created a DB.

    thanks

    Open Office. I once used it on both XP and Linux and Mac.

    Specs:
    12" Apple PowerBook G4 (1.5GHz)
    FileMaker. Dramatically more expensive, but also easier and more reliable (on the Mac, at least) than OpenOffice.
