    Database needed - similar to Sage ACT?
    Ive previously used Sage ACT database (im self employed) and it does everything that I needed
    List client details
    Note where jobs go to
    Note when jobs completed
    Invoice details
    When Paid
    When additional info recvd

    And i need to be able to create and pull of simple reports of a combination of these.

    As im only used to ACT i have no idea what is out there on the Mac and of course Sage ACT is not compatible with Macs so im stuck!

    Can anyone recommend me a good database to use for my home business?

    I don't use ACT, but I've known a lot of devoted fans of it. From what I understand of the program, you might want to take a look at this:

    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Thanks for that, ive had a look at the demo and it seems its a basic contact management programme, ACT did so much more, it was a bit like a the old Microsoft Access but with the ability to do a lot more, its not so much the contact side im after more the keeping tabs on whats been done on each client but that i can see the multiple clients info at the same time if that makes sense?

    Take a look at Wired Contact
    WiredContact : Features
    Looks like ACT!, feels like ACT!, has ACT! in its pedigree, but much lighter - but full-featured.

    It is normally sold as a self-hosted web-based solution - but if you don't want to run a Windows server then there are hosting partners that will host for you.
    I saw a demo and loved it (I am an ACT! Consultant).

    Other solutions: run ACT! on a virtual machine (eg Windows XP on VMware) or have a hosted ACT! for Web solution.
