Default creating a database

I am a new programmer and am trying to create a simple inventory database for a friend of mine. He wants to be able to write in the inventory and be able to save and change it. But he wants them in drop down boxes. This is beyond my capabilities, but am going to give it a shot... anyone know a good place to start.I have tried the treeview and data grid but dont know really what to do with them.

Do you have a relational database management system (RDMS), such as Microsoft Access, Microsoft FoxPro, SQL Server, etc.?

Access comes with a variety of wizards and templates for creating inventory systems, album-collection DBs, etc. Plus more are available at Microsoft's web site(s), and elsewhere.

If one of those tools fits your needs you can be up and running in about 2 minutes and 10 seconds...

Have you looked into that? When you select to create a new database, follow the options you’re presented with.
