Well I think it might be predictable. My only experience of using a database was going to a class on Dbase4 about 30 years ago so you can see I am pretty green. I will try and explain what I hope it will do.
If I am writing an article about James Scott I would like to be able to locate any information I have about him. The problem I have is that even if I have a hanging file for him he might be mentioned in articles about other people which I have filed under a different name. If I am to locate that it means searching through other files.

There are two programs on the market that are advertised to do what I want called "Clooz" and "Custodian3", both of which I think are based on MS Access. Quite a while ago I used "Clooz" and I was not happy with it and since then it has virtually gone out of production. Lately I downloaded "Custodian3" on a trial basis but that doesn't seem to do what I want either. Perhaps I should just be prepared to search manually?
