Hi Neil,

Thanks for taking a look at the issue with the training tutorial and for providing the link. I followed this tutorial (mamp_for_mac.php) and I have my my testing server installed. And I have my site defined. I'm using PHP.

I'm still unclear on one point. I understand I can use WebAssist DataAssist to create the dynamic pages and adim pages. But what WebAssist tool is used to create the database table that you need to begin with before starting DataAsssist? Should I use the ecommerce database provided by WebAssist, see link below?
(This tutorial instrucs me to use the ecommerce database creating_db_connection.php)
Under "What you need to start:" is says you need a A MySQL database. Under that, is a note about using the free ecommerce database.

Regarding the Flash tutorial provided in the Database Starterkit PHP. The second swf file in that tutorial says to use MySQL Query Browser to create the database table. When I visited site, I get a variety of choices and information but none are called by the name mentioned in the tutorial.
It looks like the MySQL Workbench GUI tool might be what I need but I'm unclear on how to get started in it due to the multiple actions it can perform. (Downloaded from workbench/)
Overall, I'm just a bit unclear what tool is used to create the initial database. Can you point me in the right direction as to my next step by providing the name and/or link of the tool I need to create my simple DB required to get started with DataAssist.

Thanks for your help and suggestions,
