 Database quick question - easy one for all you programmers - Beyond me though

Hi, I have to create a program that will track 12 salespeople's sales
stats, and allow for more in the future. It will track 4 constant stats
that are the same for everyone. What I'm wondering, is should I make 12
separate databases??? Would that REALLY slow down the program, or not?
Could it all be combined to one database, and how? Which is the best way?

I plan to use combo boxes to access the salesperson, then fill in text
boxes for stats, and be able to access prior 4, 8, and 12 week totals /
averages. I also want it to print out the order of salesperson figures, the
best on the top, and descending down and print it.

Thanks a bunch!

I would recommend using only one database.  Making 12 different DB's is
a lot of extra work, then what happens if your company hires 20 more
sales people?? Then you got to make 20 more databases!!  Id make one DB,
and set it up somehow (based on the requirments, which i dont have
naturally! =) )  so that each salesperson has a Unique ID (or something
like that)  that identifies him or her, and go from there.  Just relate
each stat to a specific salesperson ID.
