                    I'm another Catalyser user and have been for many years.
It's flexible, friendly and easy to use.

Dear Rosemary

You might consider looking at "Catalyzer" from
Axiope (www.axiope.com). It is a very versatile
cataloging system, and  can be downloaded for
free for use on a single computer, if you want to
try it, but the full version runs with a server.

I'm currently implementing Catalyzer in my own
work, and I find it very easy to use and
extremely flexible. It comes with Leica-import
filters, although I haven't tried those yet.

(I have no commercial interest)

best wishes
