Hi Kitschwitch,

Welcome to RootsChat  :)

My suggestion would be to use Excel, on the grounds that once you have entered your data (which is the biggest chore) it is fairly easy to transfer it another program, if you decide to change later.

If you want to exchange data later, (all, or part of your spreadsheet), most people have Excel on their computer, but relatively few will have Access.

With all the sort and filter possibilites in Excel, it could be  that that's more than enough.
