It's mainly to keep track of Subscriptions and Renewals. I'd prefer not to involve anyone on here, mainly as it would be mixing Business with Pleasure, which doesn't generally have a happy ending (Yes JSP, unless one is at a brothel ).

So thanks all for the input, I'll either do something horrible with Access or cough up for a bit of Proprietary Software.

No problem. I was having a dig at RB Warp-arounds.

That's OK, at least you were quite clear on that point and in fairness you're consistent, almost predictable...

Phew! I feared I was being a little too subtle.

Willk, I spoke to my brother who does something like this with a club/association - but with the added complication of accepting payments over the web. Essentially their solution is to use a Joomla Based Website, with their "Community" tools to store the "membership database". He then has a component that enables them to accept and process payments etc. If that interests you I'll pass on his email address and he can supply the info of how he does it in more detail (i.e. which components etc). But if you looking for some sort of local program/database then I don't see any reason excel/access could not do it (Personally unless it involved multiple people administering it I would just use Excel).

Are you being paid to put this membership package together?

FYI, it's part of my job to keep track of the members, so kind of Yes, but I'm not selling the process of organising the membership to a third party, so sort of No.

Hence my reluctance to scrounge labour from fellow Ribnetters. Advice freely given, gladly taken though!

Not really, I just wondered why so many people would want to be associated with you without there being some sort of financial renumeration.
