Hi, Kjell,
I´ve created a database for my CB collection (round about 1.000 different recordings). Each recording has been put down on a questionnaire containing the following fields:
title,length,composer,rec. date,location of recording,personnel, kind of rec.(live/Studio), medium (CD;LP;EP;DVD).Thus, you can cause the programme to answer various questions, as for instance:
-show me all titles written by Duke Ellington
-show me all recordings on which Chris plays baritone horn
-list up all live recordings in chronological order ... and so on..

The database is created with Microsoft Access (part of Microsoft Office). Unfortuantely with 2 MB it´s too big to attach, so that I can show you only some screenshots. But if you´re interested, I can send you a CD.
If You´ve any questions, let me know.

Hi Kjell,
the whole database is on the way to you via yahoo-mail. Don´t worry about your limited computer skills (mine are probably as limited as yours). It´s very easy to handle.
By the way, my email adress is:

Hi Hans,
the database is on the way to you via email (as attachment).It is generated with "Microsoft Access" (part of "MS Office 2002/2003"), which should be installed on your pc.

Best regards
