Default how do I set up a database for client information

I need to create a database (would like to do it in Excel) that would compile
client information such as name, address, birthdate, retirement date, phone,
assigned rep, e-mail address, etc. then be able to pull out only the
information needed and from only certian assinged reps.

I have never done a spreadsheet or database before. So I need explecit
details.

Thank you
Tracie

specific date range. There are instructions in Excel's Help, and he

To summarize the data, e.g. count the number of clients assigned to each
rep, you can use a Pivot Table. There are instructions in Excel's Help,
and Jon Peltier has information and links:
