Ok Here is the problem We have been using a risk assesment database programme for some time but it is getting a bit old hat only works stand alone and have only got access to it from one pc in the school. The thought is to go web based ether internal or external as a add on to our joomla site (not my idea) It is the standered stuff for going on school trips but just need to make it simpler any ideas ?? I like the idea of web based internal using php sql but dont know where to start??
