Thanks for your comments.
I have used a shareware item for my Troop in Germany and for my Post here
(until recently) called PC-File. The University uses PC-File, PC-Calc
and PC-Write in their computer literacy with software applications classes
as part of the school's computer literacy program.
PC-File will allow you to
"customize" whatever it is that you are tracking up to 60 cells. I used it
to track rank advancement, dues, special awards (the TAC has segmented
patches that are awarded for participation in camporees, for recruiting,
etc.) and the like. I used it with the Post here to track training and
participation by each person (not a really hard job, but when you have
30-45 bodies all going in separate directions and areas of interest, then
you have to manage it all somehow!!)over the period.
The reports are really good, but the flaw that it has is that you have to
code a lot of the the cells so that you (or someone else) can comphende the
That's the one I use...but like Troopmaster, it's got its limits too.
