How do I create a database application that satisfies these requirements?

  • It must be capable of running on windows and mac operating systems.
  • It must be similar visually to excel. The user needs to be able to enter data as if they were entering data into a spreadsheet.
  • It must be a relational database.
  • It needs data validation capabilities.
  • It needs to be able to handle over 15,000 entries

Microsoft Access is perfect for my needs, except for there is no mac version. SharePoint is almost perfect, except for it will not hold so many entries and is not relational. Excel almost works, except it is not relational either, and is not really a database software. I also looked online for database software, and none of the ones I've seen have excel like data entry.

  • Have you looked at FileMaker Pro?

LibreOffice Base provides a database solution, either to its own database or as a front end for a number of other databases.
