Just wondering if anybody uses computer software to make a database of their finds.
If so which one do you use  Huh

I have designed my own database using Microsoft Access but this software does take a bit (or maybe a lot!) of learning and it's quite expensive unless you get a 'student' version like I did.  However once you've mastered it is very useful.  My database lets me produce any sort of report I want as I log everything in there - type of find, location (using farm names and field numbers or GPS position), value of the items, photographs of them, PAS details etc etc.  Each year I print out reports for the farmers showing just what I have found on their land and I couldn't do this without a database.

I have had a look at a couple of other databases available on the web - the one from Minelab and "I-Detect Community".  These are ok but because I'm always thinking of new ways to analyse my data I have stuck with my Access database.
