Recommended database for small business

Hello Experts,

I am thinking of designing a database with a simple front end for a small gym that I go to. The gym has around 200 members, give or take. They have Microsoft Works, not sure if they have Microsoft Access. I checked the computer they have at their front end and that is all I found, Works. I was wondering if anyone out there new the capacity of Works? I have worked with Access extensively, but have never even opened Works. I have also worked with PHP and MySQL. Was wondering if there are other solutions out there that I could try out? The system the gym has is Windows Vista with Works installed. We are trying to keep the cost down as much as possible. Thanks!

Go with what you're comfortable with, but Microsoft SQL Express is an excellent option and really easy to use.  It's free and has a 10GB limit per database.

You also may try Oracle 11g Express, which is free, too:

Since you have worked with PHP and MySQL, you can install WAMP or XAMPP and write an application that runs on the local web server in PHP.
