Hi,

Does anyone know of any online software that allows you to create excel type databases (other than Google Drive?)

Basically i'd like to be able to login from anywhere and design the type of inputs, such as text box, text area, drop down, checkbox, etc...

Thanks in advance for your help.

I use several products from the Zoho folks:
https://www.zoho.com/

All of their products are cloud-based, so you may log in from anywhere. One of their products is Zoho Docs, which includes a spreadsheet feature:
https://www.zoho.com/docs/

There's a Free version, which allows unlimited users and up to 5GB storage. If you need more storage, and features that are not in the Free version, they have a Standard version and a Premium one, both reasonably priced:
https://www.zoho.com/docs/zoho-docs-pricing.html

I don't know if the Zoho Docs spreadsheet has all of the features you require, but I think it's worth putting on your short list. Here's the user guide for it:
https://www.zoho.com/docs/help/create-and-edit-spreadsheet.html

As a disclaimer, I want to emphasize that I have no affiliation with Zoho and no financial interest in it whatsoever. I am simply a happy user/customer. Regards, Joe

Microsoft is making a concerted effort to make the web version of Excel just as capable as the desktop version. They are rolling out new versions of the web Excel every month, and are adding features each time. Please give it a try.

To use web Excel, save your file to Microsoft's OneDrive service (either the free Personal version or the Business version) or to a SharePoint server. People who access the file will be doing so using web Excel.
