Suggestions for a GUI data base

I'm looking for suggestions on programs that would store and retrieve data. I want other students to be able to enter information such as Name, Date, Room #, Subject, Report. The 'Report' section will be for any stories, essays, etc. I also want to be able to search through the categories and have them list. Would using Tkinter with entry boxes be the way to go? Should it also use something like mysqlite to store the info into tables? Like I said, I'm just looking for suggestions on where to start this, I'll work on the code and if I have questions about that portion I will repost. Thanks!

Tkinter is a good choice (especially since that's the toolkit I am familiar with). There are several others that can be found here. For a relatively small database, XML or CSV formatted data files may be sufficient. MySQL would be a good choice for larger databases.

One of our uses has posted some sample code for interfacing with databases in the insights section. Here is an example.

It sounds like you are on the right track. Post back with questions and we will try to help.

Thanks, after viewing one of your links I think I'll go with easygui and it even has some code snippets that show a message box with multiple entry fields that I can use. That combined with MySQL should do the trick!
