Printing individual database records in Form format
 
Hi

I have a database (Mysql) with records of our club members. It is quite small only about 300 records. Unfortunately there are gaps in the information and I would like to be able to print out (two records to an A4 sheet) the records in form format so that I can pass these to the members who will fill in any blanks in the record.

If it is not possible to do what I want from the database I can convert the records to a spreadsheet and do it from there.

Any ideas or help would be appreciated.

You can use openoffice to connect to mysql and create forms that way.
In openoffice writer, choose new database from the file menu and you can set up the connection to your existing database and create tables, forms etc.
