You will probably get more responses if you post this question in the Databases or Productivity sections rather than in the Windows 98 operating system area.

What version of MS Works is it?  I have version 6.0, and on it I click Files, then New, and that will take me to the wizard from where I can define a new data base.  And that is standard Microsoft methodology for this sort of thing.  You must have a different version than mine, however, for on the Tools menu I don't have an item called Database.

You should also easily be able to find out how to do it by clicking on the Help menu and looking up some sort of item as Creating a database.

You could light a fire off of my forehead. Do any technical writers have more than a third grade education?
It's no wonder people are afraid of computers. They can't understand what the writer means.
I am not trying to blow my own horn, but I went through college with a straught A average, 4.0 and I was working full time while I was doing it, yet half the time it takes me half an hour to figure out what they mean and a lot is trial and error.
Try 'save as' and then click 'template default'
Thanks for your help. I appreciate it.
