Subject firebird for beginners
Author hew_r3

I've just started working in an organisation that is using
firebird. The person who implemented it is very hard to get hold
of. The person I'm working with doesn't know a great deal about it,
just basic maintenance of the database.

I've installed it, run through the quick guides: eg. (in
employeed.fdb) changed the password for sysdba and added a new
user. I've downloaded flamerobin and connected to the employee.fdb
database. I just don't understand where to go from here. I feel
very noobish, but I've googled for "firebird tutorial"
and "interbase tutorial" but am coming up short.

Can anyone help me find some resources on the basics so I can have a
play with employee.fdb? I think I'm just missing something, like
whether you can open the database with a client and how? Whether
there's something GUI, like MS Access or OpenOffice Base. I
typed "help" while logged into the database through isql but it
still didn't make a great deal of sense.

I can't get hold of the files we use here yet but I am hoping to
create a similar set up in the future. I think we are using it to
store data and then create Crystal Reports from the database.
