: Saving the results in a text file is simple, as you've probably found out already [....]
: Saving other data then text, requires that you use some form of database:
: 1. Use a desktop database that is supported by Delphi [...]
: 2. If you don't have the database stuff in your version of Delphi, you have to create a simple
: database system of your own, based on text files [...]
: Which way do you want to go?

I am using Delphi 7 Professional and the only Database I have is Microsoft Access 2002, I think the version of Delphi I am using has a Database engine built in but I have not studied up on it and therefore don't know much about it. I would like keep it simple and in the pass I have called up NotePad and save my Data as a text file. This works OK but I am looking for a better way and not having to work through NotePad. The Data files consist of Text and Numbers.

Do you have an example of a Menu with the (File, Open, Save, Save as, Print, Close) features using Delphi 7 Professional. I think sticking with Delphi 7 is the best way to go at this time since I don't have Paradox or dBase. --- This is an unfamiliar area for me and I appreciate your help. I have no problems doing the applications, but recording the work is what I am having the most problems with now.
