As everyone says, I'm building my first database in Open Office...I have be introduced to Access previously and this knowledge from college has helped a little, but there are definitely some differences.

My database is used to track the inventory of the company and I would like to be able to track the changes made to each record in a separate table so at month end when reconciling inventory with the accountant it isn't so much guess and check. Ideally I would like to have the before value and the after value generated automatically in the table with the time and date the change occurred and have the primary key be an integer that is automatically created each time. I have looked diligently through books and online to see if I can find anything (I could be just googling the wrong thoughts) but I have yet to be able to come up with anything that will be able to help me.

I understand that there is possible code that I might need to write (and I have no experience, but luckily I work with software engineers so help is readily available) so here is the basic information that I have
I'm using Open Office 3.1.1 with MySQL stored on a virtual server
All my information is contained in one table with roughly about 325 records (so a smaller
database - but it is growing)

I would appreciate any and all help with this and I can give more information if necessary.

Thanks!
