Thanks Ath, appreciate the info.
I've successfully been using the "Cards" function of an ancient program called Sidekick since 1990 or thereabouts. It works on everything up to XP, but it's a 16 bit program which just won't run on Win 8. It did everything I needed --- imported, exported, easily configured, searchable, etc. Now with SnapDB I can pretty near duplicate what I had. I'm in my mid 80's, and too old to fuss around with a more sophisticated relational data base.
