collection list/program

Postby maddad » Sun Jul 17, 2016 4:52 pm

Hi Everybody !
I'm sure that we all make some sort of list/s so that we can keep track of our collection of kits .
Mine has ( until now ) been done the old fashioned way, however I'm looking for a program that I can put it all down in my computer and be able to cross reference etc.
Does anybody have any suggestions on a good program / or do you have a favorite that works ?
any thoughts would be appreciated

Thanks !!

Hi
I wrote a short note on computer databases in modelling that is on this site. There was also some reference to an available database system in the note.

I use a paper list as the first record of any purchases, then they are entered into my own Access (from Microsoft Office) database. The database started in 1985 in Lotus 1-2-3 (one of the original worksheet programs).

A lot of the people on Britmodeller use an program/app called 'Scalemates'. This saves your list of kits in the 'cloud' so you access it anytime, especially with a smartphone. I don't how much they charge etc for this service.
