RE: [Scouter_T] Database - DISTRICT Training Tacking
- Hi Ida,
I am going to create a District Training tracking program using Access. I
had not thought about it being something I can use for my Woodbadge ticket,
but I like that idea.
What do you mean by "interacting" with the Council and Unit programs? Do you
mean getting data from them and back to them?
