Re: Computerized Freightcar Inventory Database Programs


So what do you suppose the engine is that's behind all these car
management programs and waybill programs and whatnot that are advertised?
And, no, I don't mean engine in the model railroad sense.

I use Excel for all sorts of lists of stuff, and most of the time I don't
care how pretty it is, but I can make it so if I feel like it. I don't
think most of the stuff we do is complicated enough to take real advantage
of a relational database like Access, although I put stuff into Access
when I can't do it conveniently in Excel.

If it can be described in twenty columns (fields) or less and there's a
few thousand rows or less, I'd go with Excel. And, although I have slides
listed in Excel, I don't have my freight cars there yet.
