I started a Word document on my Excel approach this afternoon. I should have a first draft ready in a few days depending on how ambitious I get into how-to-do's. I already have the column names and content documented. I will post it in this thread. It will show how to set up and use inventory and purchase tracking in Excel. I have to think about how to share the actual spreadsheet with all my personal data - or perhaps trim it down to some example records.
