I use Microsoft WORD documents to keep track of my load data and range results. Before that (1960's to 1980's) I used large index cards for each cartridge/load combination, then went to 8.5x11 paper forms. Converting from paper to WORD was a pain but worth the effort. WORD doesn't have the searchability of a data base or Excel file, but does allow unlimined text and freer form wherein I keep records of every range session with that load and firearm. Here is a link to a copy of one page.
