Subject: Re: Cataloguing Programs?

Some years ago using Excel I designed  my own, which covered every 
theatrical event which I attended, with the columns I wanted including 
Title, Venue, Location, Production Company (if one) and, if an Opera, 
the surnames of those who sang the principal roles, and the conductor. 
There is also a column for Genre (Opera; Musical. Play etc)

For some reason ever since I was eight years of age (sixty years ago), 
when my Mother used to take me to the Theatre to see musicals, I kept a 
diary of everything I saw as well as keeping the Ticket Stubs and 
Programmes.  Accordingly I also have columns for Year and Date. Those 
columns are invaluable when I want to sort chronologically.  Over the 
years I have traveled a lot and seeing a lot of theatre outside of my 
own country just by looking at this spreadsheet I can see where I was 
whenever and literally follow my trips.

My big problem is storage and what to do with them when I no longer care!

Regards to you all
