 Post subject: Catalog of CD-ROMs
Posted: Thu Apr 29, 2004 3:10 pm 
Good day.

I have several CD-ROMs full of application notes, magazine articles, etc. I am in need of some way to set up a searchable database for these CD-ROMs.

I would like the database to somewhat build itself - i.e. I will have an ASCII file that would include company name and title (for an application note) and then this file could be imported to the database.

I would like to be able to search by date, author, title, magazine title, company name, and keyword.

Does anyone have some thoughts, ideas, or suggestions on how I could do this?

Thank you very much for your time and help.

a while ago, I kept 2x2 inch paperbox database.
andvantage: no power requirements, no passwords, no viruses, no new data formats. If it gets cold, burn it. :lol:
