Comments:Let's be frank. If you are a professional photojournalist, you don't need to know too much. (lens, film stock, fstop, etc.) This is for nuts and bolts information. Get the important info in quickly; get it out quickly. . A lot of my colleagues who are just now buying palm OS machines have been asking about this database. I've used it every day for years, on assignments here and abroad. I've made it as simple as it can be, while still allowing for potent searching, etc. You may wish to split the subject field into first and last names, or add a category field, as fits your needs. Keep that notepad in the car for a backup, and make your note-taking work better. And now, with the HDB desktop's ability to synchronize back the the palm, it's a breeze to update and correct your notes while you're sitting at your desk.
