    I am a conductor of a local choir, and have a large amount of sheet music
    filed in cabinets here and there. I was tryign to build an Access Database
    to catalogue it all earlier, but to my dismay, failed miserabley! Does
    anybody either know of a link to a suitable system, or have one that they
    woudlnt' mind sharing? *looks hopeful*

    i want to store composers/arranger, title, no. copies, sacred/secular, style
    & type, period and a notey field...

    Thanks you!

    There are templates on the microsoft website for music (record) collections.
    I'm sure you could easily modify that to meet your needs.

    Hi Max

    I have written something similar to what you want, if you are interested
    please send me an e-mail (see my profile and omit the last 8 characters).

    Microsoft provided a sample "Music Collection" wizard in Access 97 to
    help people get started along that line. If you can find it, you may
    be able to create the basic application and then extend it to do the
    rest of what you want. I seem to recall an actual MyMusic.mdb
    template on the MS Office site. Not sure.

    If the above doesn't get you to where you need to be you can decode my
    email address and start a dialog. I've done a couple of library
    applications for my own use (tech CD/DVD and my own Music library
    (vinyl, reel to reel, cassette, and CD)) Neither of them would
    exactly meet your needs and I wouldn't share either of them "as is".
    However, if you'll work with me to define your needs I'll give you a
    working copy of an application that meets them.
