    Basically what I was looking for was a template, I wasn't looking to have the
    system written for me, I thought that someone out there may have written
    something similar at one time or another that I may have been able to adapt
    to my requirements rather than sitting down and writing the whole thing from
    scratch..

    I am an Australian registered psychologist, the regulations for record
    storage are very stringent, the actual database would be as secure as my
    current paper based records, I planned on storing this to cd/dvd-rom, not on
    a mainframe. I need something that allows me to report on time spent etc.

    There's no business model that makes it worthwhile for anyone but Microsoft
    to create Access templates; templates are for letting many users do some
    (usually minor) choice and customization of a basic database application.

    Thus, you are far more likely to find "a sample" or "an example" database
    for a particular application than to find a "template" similar to the
    templates that come with the Access product.

    I have not seen a sample/example database for a psychology practice, but
    many "service industry" sample/examples might serve as a good starting
    point -- they would have customer information, appointment information,
    records of service, etc.. With a little "out of the box" thinking, something
    like an "automotive service shop" database could serve as your "jumping off
    point".

    The FAQ site, http://www.mvps.org/access has a lot of links to sites with
    Access information, some of which include example databases. Your best,
    perhaps only, chance to find a template would be to start at
    http://office.microsoft.com and search for one that might apply. Another
    site with links to Access resources is http://ntaccess.tripod.org.
