New and elementary? What exactly is that supposed to mean?

What kind of database you use depends on what you are planning to do with the data; how it is meant to be used. If it's basically just a local, personal collection of things then something like Excel will do fine. If it's meant as a database for a client-side application, then something like SQL Server Compact, SQLite or perhaps even Access would likely be of more use. If it's for a more demanding system, like a server application or a website, then you'd want to use a more robust database server system, like MSSQL, MySQL, Oracle, and so forth.
