Online or free database
Just a quick question
I am ebaying some stuff for my aunt, and one of the things I am listing is a collection of 45's.
I was wondering if there is sometype of free database program or online thing, that I can enter all of the info too and then save it to my website or something so that I can insert a table into my ebay auction that lets people sort the albums by artist or label or song etc.

lol I thought you were talking about guns at first. hehe
Could you make a page in HTML (or a few (links...)) and then use the inline frame code to put it in ebay?

What program can I use to make the database that I can create a HTML code for on my server..
I just found google docs.. and see if that will help

I have about 40 albums (45rpm vinyl records) that I want to create a list for...
I would like the list to be organized by either artist, or record label, since I know nothing about selling albums.
This way a collector can say "im looking for his artist" or perhaps "I am trying to fill out my 1950 rca victor collection... many of hte albums I have are actually "sets" so this would be easier to list properly doing it that (some artists span a couple of labels... so just grouping them by label and sub grouped by artist is not a viable option)
Perhaps im just over thinking this. lol

You may be able to use MySQL (free - open source) or HSQL (free -open source). It would take some application programming to get any database to an HTML page. HTML can't talk to a database. You could make a small web app to imbed in your HTML page but I have a feeling EBay would block it.

Or SQL Server 2005 Express. You could also use a flat file (cvs or xml) or just save an Excel page as html.
