I am the treasurer for Northwest Killies and it is my responsibility to
manage the information collected at the club auctions. I am trying to put
together a File Maker Database that will allow me to have:
I would like to be able to have a Database set up where the seller could
bring up the item for the auction and I could enter it in based on the
criteria up above. For the Categories, I hope to have a pull down menu to
select from Killies, Plants, Books/magazines, and Misc.
For the names of the Fish, I would like to be able to have a pull down menu
for Genus, species, subspecies, and collection code to select from. This

so, is this something that could be shared with our club? Would we be able

for a modest fee?
I am completely overwhelming myself with our current system which consists
of everyone hand writing their entries on paper, then having me use those
pages to record the auction info. I can't keep up with the auctioneer and
the calculating of the balances is overwhelming.
