Data entry in my place of work has been going on with fox pro but it is quit an old application and i am trying to figure out an open source alternative where i will be able to replicate most of what is being done on fox pro already. Can anyone please recommend a good alternative? I think Visual Fox Pro uses Dbase Programming Language and i am not really well informed on it. This wikipedia article describes it https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Visual_FoxPro. It's Probably insufficient so i am going to describe the kind of data we enter.
We use it to entered data on daily activities of mammals such as Eating, sleeeping, playing etc. I also use it to enter data on ranging activities and so in a single day i can have a sheet with nearly 50 entries. The date changes per sheet so i want a dbsm that will allow me to enter the date once and not 50 times for each sheet, and when i move to the next sheet i can change the date once and the date is similar for the next 50 entries. I also want to be able to restrict the number of entries in a field. Sorry my description is probably insufficient but i am a complete novice to this site and to using databases
