Re: Empty Database File

Re: Empty Database File

Thank you Vadi! I've got the database mostly working now. I'm still not sure how I'm going to get the effect table field to work. The idea is to add 1-10 effects with a type and a value field. Do you have any advice on the matter?

Empty Database File

Hello Folks, I've been working on putting together an item data base and I've been having a difficult time structuring it. Some basic tests databases I have made work fine.
