Description:This database is accessed via the Cars DB and is used to hold car maintenance records. You can also enter the maintenance interval when you enter the first record of its kind so that HandDBbase can tell you when it's due next!
Has Data:Yes
Has Forms:No
Filters:Filter on 'Due at' with a lower limit of zero and an upper limit of your car's current mileage to see maintenance that you've done that should have been done by your current mileage. You can add an OR filter on 'Due on' with a lower limit of when you bought the car and an upper limit of the current date to see which maintenance items should be done by now.
Sorting:It's come to my attention that several of my gallery applet files had become corrupted on the HanDBase server. Unfortunately, it's also the case that if an author changes their e-mail address, they become disconnected from their applets, so I haven't been able to re-upload the files. This has now been corrected. Thanks for your patience!
Reports:Report on 'Cost' to see how much that car is costing you.
Comments:To create or view maintenance records for a car, open the car's record from the Cars DB, then tap 'Maintenance'. If you're entering items that haven't been completed at least once yet, use an Odo reading of 0.0 and a 'Done last' date of when you bought the car. When a maintenance item has been completed, find the corresponding record in the database, then use "Copy Record to New" to create a new copy and update the "Service Performed" information with the new info. HDB will show you when maintenance is next due on that item. Complete suite contained in Cars.zip.

The main "gateway" to the Car_Fueling and Car_Maintenance DBs. Enter the info for each of your vehicles here, then open this DB to add corresponding Fueling History and Maintenance records.

04/04/2003 Recipes2000 [Food and Drink]
This is an improvement on Dave Haupert's Recipes DB. It's organized a bit differently and adds several new features, including the ability to have HanDBase calculate the quantities of ingredients you need to make a given number of servings. It's also linked with my Shopping List DB, which means you can pick your ingredients right out of your shopping list!
