    Australian government paid $4 million for one , it was a excel spread sheet

    ( what happens when you send full payment before getting and inspecting what you paid for .. )

    Does GunSafe allow you to export your data? If you have to give up GunSafe, which you may not have to as long as it continues to work for you, you should look for a replacement program that allows you to import your data from whatever format GunSafe exports to. That should save you at least some data entry if not most.

    Thanks,

    If you are a tight wad why not use Open Office Calc? It's free!

    I use an Excel spreadsheet myself. But my collection isn't terribly extensive, and I've been using computers extensively since I was 5 years old.

    That makes perfect sense. Sorry to question you about that. :)

    BTW, Excel based files make excellent transfer mechanisms from one program to another.

    microsoft office has a lot more to offer. I miss ms publisher and excel. I use generic terms like kleenex instead of the proper facial tissue.

    Thank you for the info nmCollector. GunSafe is working for me at the present but you know how things can go wrong at any time in the future. And let me add a welcome to the forum if you haven't received one before.

    Thank you for the welcome. I joined back in 2009 but mostly lurk. If you can export to a .csv file (essentially an Excel compliant format) that's a good first step towards importing into most other programs. You will certainly have to rearrange the data (cut and paste) to match what the importing program expects but that should be much less work than re-entering all of your data from scratch.
