Computer program for reloading logs?

I am looking for an easier way to log all my reloading. I want a simple computer program to help me track everything. I don't need all the ballistic calculaters and energy charts and such. Just something that holds all the proper info for reloads to help me track everything.
Without weapons, it's just another airline!

Excel or Calc (the spreadsheet program that comes in the free Open Office suite). This way you put in only what you want to include.

Any spreadsheet program. You can list what you are doing first like: Cartridge, primer, bullet brand, bullet weight, powder name, powder weight, etc., across the top of the page, underneath the above labels, and then if you want to do things like add up the powder weight, you can add formulas later. Also, after you learn to use a spreadsheet you will learn how to add columns and rows and change things.
These are the things you would have learned in my computer class if you had been one of my students in high school.

Check out the Lee Shooter Disc. I think its what you are looking for and fairly reasonable. Also comes with several reloading manuels.

I've shared it with others before...

But I have a nice Microsoft Access database setup that's been configured as a reloading log.

I have a zipped copy here:

Notepad.exe that's what I use.
I don't carry a gun to go looking for trouble, I carry a gun in case trouble finds me.

I made a log in Excel. It has tabs for .32 ACP through .45 Colt, and many in between. I change the look of the page to suit. I print them out and put them in a 3 ring binder, as well as back up the file in two places.
