I am a complete newbie with databases. I have an Intuit website, so would like to be able to use this app to add a database to my site. I want users to be able to select one, multiple, or all of the checkbox options that are displayed on the front page, and depending on what has been selected, different reports would be displayed.

Specifically it is a database of essential oil blends. So on the front page they might select lavender and rosemary, and what would display is a list of all "recipes" in the database that contain both of those essential oils. User would then select which one they would like to display, or alternatively they could all display on one page as long as there was clear delineation between the different formulas.

Thank you for any help you can give....I see how to set up checkboxes, but not sure how to set up the formulas, and how to link the checkboxes to the formulas...

I am a quick study on learning computer software... :)

You would need to create the fields in an application first. Here is a help topic about check boxes:

You would also need to create a role that would give non-users the ability to add the data on your site:

Then the last step would be to create a web form:

I know that might be a lot for a new QuickBase user. If you need help, I would suggest you enter a support case. They can help you out in more detail!
