RE: A spreadsheet can work.

I started to digitally catalog my music accession using MS Access, with drop down lists and a whole bucket load of stuff that Access can do. But I found it tedious for what I really needed and that was a simple list of albums with a handful of attributes so I didn't buy something I already had. That, and a reminder of great music that I have but don't play very often; "lost treasures" so to speak. I now use a relatively simple spreadsheet with a master list and a couple of Pivot-Tables that I save as a PDF file. I can mail and access that PDF table with my smart phone when I shop for albums in record stores.

Databases are nice, but spreadsheets can be similarly useful with less work. At least for me.
