Steve, I have in Microsoft Access 2000 an empty relational database (has structure and tables, but no data) based on what Boyce and the rest of us discussed 8 or so years ago. I am happy to send this out, but I can't guarantee that it meets the present minimum requirements for data. Contact me privately at the email at bottom for a copy.

Failing that, what information, from most critical to least, would you want to see kept for material in a private collection? Thanks, Steve -- James Shields firstname.lastname@example.org P.O.
