If this is an inappropriate post, please delete but I figured Ol' Myrt was a good way to get the word out to a lot of people.

I am looking to talk with anyone who manages a vertical file for a society or library.
I have volunteered for the task for a local society and I just want to find out how others are tracking the items in the vertical file.
Ours started out hand-written in a spiral notebook, and has evolved into a spreadsheet with one column that has the name of the item.
I can basically change anything I want as far a tracking the items. The only thing I was told is that the names written on the actual folders cannot be changed.
I am not going to change the current system unless I see a better, easier way. I think there probably is a better way but I don't know what it is.
I want to keep it relatively simple and do not want to move into the true database solution. I think a more expanded spreadsheet may be the answer, with columns to categorize, etc.

So I am welcoming any suggestions or a more detailed discussion!!
