I have a database of CD recordings which is used by the Linlithgow Club.
It is maintained on Lotus 123 which is simple and can be reorganised
using the data commands to give any type of prioritising or sorting.
I have also been able send it as a binary to other club members who also
use it.

Let me know if you want a copy to see if you can play with it.
