First table with names. second table with store items.
I read the northwind for preparing invoices which does not fit my requirement.
Pls give me links for me to read up on how to prepare report on persons who
have made purchases by linking these two tables.
Pls give any links where I can read on how to go about to prepare a report
on persons who made purchases; report of stores opening stock, quantity sold
and stock balance etc.

You need at least one more table - to record purchases.
You cannot put a link to the Items table in the people table, because a person
may purchase more than one item. Similarly, you cannot put a field for People
in the Items table, because many people may purchase a given item.
Therefore you need a third table, with a PersonID (a link to the primary key
of the table of people), an ItemID (link to the table of items), and doubtless
other fields - date purchased, quantity purchased, price paid, etc.
You may need yet more tables. The Northwind sample database has tables for
Customers, Products, Orders, and OrderDetails, since a given purchasing event
may involve multiple products.
