What I want to do is have them submit it via a GUI interface to a remote MYSQL server and be able to view, print, search, the database of incidents.
I am familar with how to get a mysql server running, but I was wondering if there was a GUI interface front end to MYSQL that I could configure so users would be able to do the basic mysql things that one can do at a command line, but at a GUI interface from their Windows XP machines.
If you are looking for a GUI interface for Windows XP, this should be posted on General, since it is not a Linux question.
Anyway, look for MySQL Query Browser. It is very nice and friendly. Don't expect it to be a nice as Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express (which you might consider using also), but it sure is helpful.
I am not sure what they do at your company, but it surprises me that they don't use a database for that. Something like TargetProcess
would be an even better solution as well.
