We are in the initial stages of setting up a database of schools to take part in a UK-wide project. I am also in the middle of building a beautiful WP alternative to the monstrous Joomla thing we're saddled with. This might clinch it, but you'll need to use simple-speak. I want to create an online form that will feed the database with details of applicants. This database must be searchable, sortable and secure, and if it's able to export fields and info to Access and Excel so much the better. Can this be done in a straightforward way?
All help genuinely appreciated - all hail WordPress!
