I say it is easier than older database systems, but it is powerful and has a learning curve that can get very steep at times. The starter solutions would probably help get you started but you will have to educate yourself to many of its features. If you are familiar with scripting and design this program makes any task easy. but don't get into this if you are a true novice. Paul
I also just started using it myself. I am a Microsoft Access user. I have not had any problems so far with the tutorials and instruction book. It has done what they said so far. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
