Okay,
just started up a demo database for you.

Here is how it might look for you.... notice that I like to make Titles BOLD, and have a lightly tinted background.









I am emailing you a link to download this exact database to start with doodling with it.

Check you email, it is there already, and the database in attached to the email.

Column Widths can be changed on the fly to accommodate anything you like.

Mouse over the title line between two columns, Double Click it and the column on the left side of the line will expand to show all the words inside that column.


The example I just showed you was created in Linux Libre Office Calc,

but I saved it as a Microsoft Excel 97-2003 compatible .XLS format so it will come up and look exactly like you see it here.

Copying the movies to a hard drive would take a long time, I have about 1500 movies on a hard drive plugged into a tv so they can be watched at anytime.they are all downloaded from the internet from varios web sites, turn the hard drive on & you can watch anything in 30 seconds.as for searching for them I would look at IMDB website as that will search for you so you dont have to spend a very long time inputting the data, I have been doing this for years & once you get used to it its easy, you can download 10 films at a time & depending on internet speed they can be down in a handful of minutes.if you want more info on how to do it let me know & when I get home ( im on a Greek island at the moment enjoying the sun) I can send you more details on how to set it up.

Yep that is what I am talking about.

Only a biker knows why a dog puts his head out of a window of a moving vehicle.

Dennis,

did some looking and here is a spreadsheet program that is better than the "Microsoft Works" that you have now... it will accept all of the common formats.

Here is a description of it:

and here is the Download link:

and look at this, something that I think you will really appreciate:

What's new in WPS Office 2016 Free

[+] Support for converting PDF to DOC/DOCX (Special Features -> PDF to Word), plus split and merge PDF files.

I've not given up but am getting frustrated.

All the sites so far don't seem to have the ability to sort by location.

Works spreadsheet is a monster to deal with. I can't even get the font set.

But, it seems to be the best choice otherwise.

Why ain't we ridin'?
