You are close, but my problem is not exactly as described. First of all, along the years I have made a heavy of investment on Oracle. Not necessarily in money terms, but the really valuable resources: time, knowledge, access programs, reading this NG :-) etc.

Initially it was not too hard to design simplistic tables and write access programs. As time goes by, those schemas need to be more complex, and I start having doubts of whether there are other approaches and solutions.

I guess I need to hire a real DBA, but can't afford it now...
