TECH: Abcess Lexicon

I was wondering if anyone has ever made an ms Abcess database for their
lexicon, and if they ever got it to work? I tried to do one for 'Yemls.
What I wanted to do is something like:

'YemlsLexeme  AspectClass  ArgumentStructure  NotesOnLexeme
* 1stGloss  PartOfSpeech  NotesOnUsage
* 2ndGloss  PartOfSpeech  NotesOnUsage
* etc.

for each lexeme. Also, a same English word might be used as a gloss for
more than one lexeme as well.

I can set up tables etc. but Abcess won't let me enter all the fields
together (or even separately ?) Anyhow this question is somewhat academic
since it's too late to enter all the data before my relay turn.
