PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
_______________________________________________________________________

Household Register is a full featured menu driven easy to use program
that maintains a detailed list of everything you own. Each item is
automatically categorized by location, category, owner and item. The
user can easily customize the pop-up menus for the Location (24 sel-
ections), Category (24 selections) and Owner (8 selections) fields.
The pop-up menus can be turned off if desired and data can be typed
directly into the three fields rather than using menu selections.
Each database can hold 99,999 items the program supports an unlimited
number of databases. On screen help is provided for each screen and
help lines are automatically displayed for each data entry field.

The comprehensive reports section of the program lets the
user examine every aspect of his/her possessions. The total value
report lists the inventory items and computes the total value of the
inventory using purchase price or replacement price. A five page
summary report computes the total value by category, location or
owner and provides many valuable statistics about the inventory, such
as the percentage change between the purchase price and replacement
price. A warranty report is also provided that will prove invaluable
in tracking warranty information. A total of seven reports are avial-
able which can be listed to the screen, printer or a disk text file.
Also reports can be printed on continous form Index or Rolodex cards.
The full featured and comprehensive search/selection module lets
the user list only those itmes that meet the specified criteria.
A sample database is included to allow quick examination of the pro-
gram.

Short Description: Complete Home/Office inventory program.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
