Description:Simple tracking and showing a report of the days between events on different days, not the same day at different times. I track the last time I used a particular medicine and determine if my condition is cyclic, improving, etc. Can use any event by changing the name of field and adding any fields you want. Medical, daily lives, event recording. Days since I treated cats for fleas. Whatever...
Has Data:Yes
Has Forms:No
Reports:Quickly show report of progress with the report graphing feature associated with the elapsed day field.
Comments:Added a text document to fully document this simple database, because I had a hard time getting my head around the creation of another similar one without fully understanding how and why it works. Since I did all the work and now understand it I thought I would share. It is similar to another that adds time of day and time between events on same day, but that was way to complicated for what I wanted so I simplified it.

01/23/2013 Flash Cards Photo [Teaching]
Nov. noticed a problem with the file. Fixed it. Try it now... Primarily the same format as Flash Cards, but I have added the ability to add a 4 pictures to go along with the description. So, now you can use a photo to illustrate part of the question in addition to the important information. Great for my purpose of learning butterflies. Could also be used for learning families of plants, people or any other image you need to identify and are having a hard time remembering. This could even be used to take a picture of something and add a note about it as a information gathering device. I've included 1 record with the 4 pictures associated with it and some suggestions about use in that record also. There is a text file in the zip file which gives more information about best way to use this to learn items and using it as an actual Flash Card system and learning tool.

12/07/2013 Netflix Streaming [Entertainment]
Problem with Netflix: it sometimes forgets what episode you watched last. With a long series (X Files has 100 episodes) it can be hard to find your place again, so this at least keeps your place when Netflix forgets. Delete my data plus some testing items & add your own. This has a form which makes the records easy to deal with. Add a record for each TV series and this record is easily updated, and date added so you know when you last watched an episode. Netflix has its own numbering system which doesn't agree with the actual series Season / Episode numbers. Therefore I record all three items with a tap of the finger to update the number. You can also edit a box to start the record at any number record. When done, a large yellow "SAVE" button gets you out of that record.
