Hi Maceij. Thanks for the info. I forgot to mention in my post that there is a table menu table like that already. I'm also already familiar with user based security roles etc. I've just never done anything in c# or winforms before. I'll have a look at the link. Thanks again.

Sorry for the LOOOONG awaited reply. Literally only saw your reply now. Like I said, I'm a total noob. So please excuse the ignorance. I'm basing the design off of another popular application, which basically (from what I'm seeing) saves "individual" db and dat files instead of a database file. I just don't know how to achieve that. Obviously I will be having a professional programmer go through everything once I've done the basics but I'm honestly trying to do as much as possible myself and learn a new thing or two along the way. Any guidance you could give would be appreciated.

Hi Rick,

Thanks for the info. I get the basics of it. I didn't "think" about that specifically because the database is saved as a MDF file inside the individual companies directory and the "Open" form with the grid shows the companies name not the database name.

Thanks for the info!

My apologies. I use SQL Server database mdf file for each company. No, I haven't tried that. The only reason I didn't "think" about that was because the database is saved as a MDF file and the "Open" form shows the different company names, not the database names.

Thanks for the explanation Gerry. Yeah. I'm just redoing these tables as I'm going along now. Ultimately I'll have more tables but at least I can get the information out and updated/inserted/deleted correctly.
