Hi friends
Currently I am using excel sheet to make entries of media which have come for DR .
I am keen to have a small freeware software instead. Many such tools like hdd data structure making tool , hdd sn checking tool are immensely helping me.
If anyone knows such software I will be highly obliged.
A basic version which will make entries of customer name /contact info , media type , model / sn/ fw etc will be fine.
Thanks

Hi,

Why not simply using a MySQL/MariaDB database and create your own table ?
phpMyAdmin would allow basic vizualization, data entry/edition/deletion and SQL queries.
You can then build an optimized tool with some PHP code, Javascript, jQuery.

Alternatively, you could use Kexi with an sqlite database.
Kexi is kind of free alternative to Framemaker/Access, letting you create masks that interact with database records.

Can you give more details about what you mean by

Hi SOSdonnees
Thanks for replying. I am unfortunately very much familiar with programming on any software platforms you mentioned .
I have given examples of many free tools developed by DR community in our forum and are distributed freely.

Hi terminator2,

MySQL/MariaDB accessed through phpMyAdmin does not require any programming.
phpMyAdmin interface offers integrated features for easy insertion/search/deletion of records.
Furthermore, it can work almost like an Excel spreasheet as double-clicking a table cell allows to edit the record.

Their installation is straightforward with XAMPP (Windows), MAMP (Mac OS), LAMP (Linux).

Some knowledge of the SQL query language will pay on the long term but is even not necessary for almost all tasks.
