Listing and editing information stored in databases is a very common use of Web based applications. Often there are pages for listing information and pages for editing, adding and deleting that information.

This packages provides a solution that attempts to provide an integrated interface for either listing and editing information stored in MySQL databases.

The attempt to provide a very similar way to access database information to what is provided by desktop database access applications like MS Access reflects an intention to make Web applications almost as practical as desktop applications.
