    Hey all, does anyone know of any programs out there that would be good to use as database for Transformers. Thanks

    Depends what you're looking for. I've experimented with Microsoft Access and MS Excel, both had their good points but neither were ever perfect.

    yeah, I put mine in an excel sheet, with columns for autobots and decepticons from each toyline. for instance, it starts out with g1 autobots, then g1 decepticons, then beast wars maximals, bw preds, etc. at the bottom of each column, in row 100 I type in the number of toys in each column.

    at the end of the whole sheet, I have it set up to add up all of the numbers in the 100th cell of each column to give me a total number of transformers I have, so whenever I get a new guy, I add 1 to the number in the 100th cell of that column, and the "grand total" box automatically updates itself. hope that wasn't too wordy :)

    Just write all my info down in a big notebook.

    A page for each series. And throw my TF count index in the back and contents in the front.

    I just use Microsoft NotePad. It's a long list, but I have each series in alphabetical order, with figures from that series indented and in alphabetical order as well.

    For example, here's a sample from my Beast Machines section:

    BEAST MACHINES:
    - Battle Unicorn (Basic)
    - Beast Changer (Deluxe)
    - Blackarachnia (Deluxe)
    - Blastcharge (Deluxe)
    - Buzzsaw (Basic)

    I also list the size point of the figures, and in the case of Armada or Cybertron, I list the Mini-Cons or Force Chips codes along side the figures.

    I'm sure there's a better way of keeping track of what I have, but this works for me, and makes referencing easy!

    I keep mine listed on a word document. I seperate them by line and have a total for that line

    Cybertron (35)
    Alts (21)
    etc..

    Then i have the grand total at the top and have a few subtotals.
