Hello,

I am looking for a mac program that can act both as a database (similar to an excel) and a document manager (where i can put all my important documents).
The ideal would be a single platform where both kinds of data could be stored and then searched/retrieved.

I know FileMaker can do this; however when i want to put different kinds of data I have to be constantly creating new databases and it's hard to make searches in all of them. Bento is more effective on this; however I have limited folder/sub-folder/sub-sub folder creation options and also limited sharing with other people.

Do you have any suggestions?

Thank you
