Creating a database browing window

Hello, I am relatively new to Python and my boss has given me a task. In SQL, he would like me to create a database browsing window and I truly have no idea how to do this. I just downloaded Python 2.4 and would like any help possible. Thanks

You got it, Rook. I just wrote a wxPython Tree for browsing my MySQL DB, the the widget that you choose will depend on the structure of your tables. So, fire away!

What suggestions do you have for me? Is there anyway I could see a sampling of your code

There's lots of foundational code in the Python Articles section of this group. Once you decide on an RDBMS and a GUI framework, you can start building a basic front end.

For the DB, there are many free light-weight options. I imagine that they are all about the same, but don't have any experience installing or using any of them. MySQL is a full featured RDBMS that's free for non-commercial use and the one that I am using.

GUI Toolkit options are discussed here.

That ought to get you rolling, Rook.
