This is the second lesson in the Personal Training Log project. In this lesson you'll implement a database solution to store and retrieve the exercise data entered into the log. You'll also develop the code to display and control the calendar for any month of any given year, allowing data to be entered for past or future dates.

The completed personal training log project

Databases are the foundation of many business applications, not only because they offer an efficient way to manage data, but also because they are increasingly easy to use. Ten years ago, database implementation was done mainly for large-scale applications and could require a team of support professionals. Today, it makes sense to use a database solution even for something as small as a personal training log in Director.
