Excel is great, but you're essentially writing the software yourself .. wo either a major task or build bit-by-bit (as i did over the course of ... EEK! 25 yrs like you say super-powerfl and super-flexible .... therefore ,imo, steep learning curve.UNLESS there's good templates?Yes, long term commitment, but you remain in control... And if it's too much, the local Mac User Group likely has an Excel guru or two willing to do the initial setup if you can't find an open, unlocked template as the starting point.. DW learned on the job, in a production/planner/scheduler job, so we'd bounce ideas back and forth, find answers, never been stumped. My own needs more modest, so modest that after a decade of retirement, many projects have faded into the archives. But, DW uses Excel constantly, what/if's, budgeting, financial management, to where I've dropped back to reviewer status, but if need be I know I can take over.. Same sort of thing with databases, Filemaker in particular, like Excel, extremely flexible, and again, there are a lot of gurus around that could do the initial setup, but if you do it yourself over time, you learn, know where to poke and prod... That beats relying on a third party to update, fix, maybe explain... it's been a solid winer for ages, never has crashed, like Excel... Visicalc was my first entry into spreadsheets, they've come a long way.. Magic!weco
