    [Every | Almost every] template on the Microsoft site is for "filing" one
    thing or another. That's what database applications are, filing systems of
    varying degrees of sophistication.

    If you could clarify what you mean by "basic filing system," maybe even
    describe what you want to file, perhaps someone could make a useful
    suggestion.

    Well, at my office we have a bunch of old files for clients that we have done
    insurance quotes for in the past . We are now going to file these away in
    boxes but want a database to show which files(clients) are in which box a
    form which i created is something like this

    Client name

    Clients Policy type

    Date cover started

    Date Cover ended

    Box

    I need a template which links it all together please help

    Almost certainly, you want to be able to search by Client Name, but I can't
    recomment strongly enough that you separate that into LastName, FirstName,
    and MiddleName. What other of the information might you want to use to
    qualify (or limit) what you are searching for?

    What version of Access are you using? If you don't know, on most any Access
    screen, under Help, choose About Microsoft Access.

    Do you want this accessible to several users on a LAN, or just a single
    user?

    Would it be a good idea to have a "checkout" capability? (The answer is not
    necessarily "yes.")

    As I don't often use "templates," I admit to not being familiar with the
    ones on the Microsoft site, but this seems, on the surface, pretty simple --
    as in, maybe a single table might suffice, since you're not storing the
    "files" themselves but only an "index" to them.
