We do not have any particular recommendations.  There are some good ones
around, but people will often barrack for the one they are most familiar
with, as with, for example, word processing software.  However, I think
Michael Todd made a very strong case for using a general database program
such as Access and taking a little bit of trouble to become familiar with
it.  Also keep in mind that the new Atlas project will use Access for
database software.

Cheers,  Hugo.
