Hello all.  I am really new to python but have been learning.  This is my first post and hopefully someone will be able to help me out.  I have a .dbf that contains a huge list (59000 records) of geologic units and their corresponding quadrangles.  Each geologic unit can be found in multiple quads too.  I want to develop a program that asks a user to input what geologic unit their looking for and output the corresponding quadrangle(s).  What would be the best way for me to approach this problem?  Thanks for any input.
