    Err... I think that's just too few information to give you an adequate answer. Do you want to know how to set up MySQL on your computer or how to create a database through SQL statements?

    Anyway, this post would be better suited in the MySQL forum though (guess why it's here).

    Well I'm used to using Access to create a Access DB, is there a program to create a mySQL.

    I ideally this would be on my computer, but I don't really want to setup a PHP server - is there not a standalone program?

    The MySQL database usually comes in a bundle that provides you with a number of programs to manage your database - most importantly, the MySQL server and the client program for administration. Since all are free to use, where's the problem with installing a MySQL db?

    Plus there is no standalone PHP server. Usually PHP runs integrated into a web server environment, most preferably Apache, but not limited to. And there are newer developments like calling PHP from command line and PHP-GTK, but these are advanced technologies in beta status.

    Perhaps you want to take a look at firepages' phpdev package? It's definitely worth the download.
