Microsoft Access is a reasonable database program that you could use. It
would enable you to define any fields you wanted, order them, display
your database (or only selected parts of it), print lists and labels
etc. It would also have the advantage of being the same program Houard
Hughes is using to record all the iris checklists.

Which reminds me, anybody ever hear anymore from Howard? Last time I
wrote I got no response. Any clue as to where he is on his project?
