    So first step is to guess how many bits per field... thats the tricky part for me.
    How would I guess how many bits is in a field...
    Example: The Date of Birth, first name, surname

    Then obviously you multiply by the number of records.. then you divide by a 1000 to make it into kB if necessary and then add 10% overhead
