I concur with Sharon re FileMaker Pro: It (not Excel) is the go-to workhorse of 
our office — and a program well worth learning for almost any purpose (I 
personally have more than 1,000 recipes logged into it).  Filemaker is very 
powerful, but it may seem over-technical to those unacquainted with set theory, 
Boolean logic, SQL, and relational architectur more comment about Filemaker - I don't even know what Boolean logic, 
SQL, etc. are, but I use File Maker to manage thousands of addresses with 
hundreds of pieces of information related to each person, teaching notes, data 
for articles I am writing, etc.  (and yes, it's great for recipes too). So 
don't be intimidated by how powerful it is.  I am not technical at ALL.  :)  liz
