Here this post contains an attachment to an Access database that may be useful without too much pain on your end. If you're familiar with it, Access can be advantageous, in that your information is better managed and because of its relational design, when a single piece of information is updated, it will be updated everywhere else it applies.

If you plan on having more than one person use it, consider splitting the DB into a front-end and back-end so it can be accessed and shared by multiple users. It is a relatively simple procedure. I've linked a tutorial on how to do this.

I agree a relational database is preferable to a flat one like excel. Folks with a large quantity of data, however, should consider a more robust one than Access, which many database pros denigrate when scaling up from small operations to large ones.

Unless you are an Access pro, though, you should consider trying to adapt an existing database program to your use.

Personally, I like the idea of a web-based one, IF there are sufficiently strong password protections to to "hinder" hacking (nobody can absolutely PREVENT hacking an internet accessible system, only make the effort difficult enough to send a hacker to easier prey.)

If you company has a intranet without exterior access, you can have this king of software installed on a simple webserver only accesible only on the "inside" domain.

Could you pls clarify what you mean ?
Perhaps "king" was a typo for "kind"? Either word is acceptable in this context if the poster feels the software he suggests is superior to other software.

In response to my post about exercising caution against hacking on internet-accessible systems, the poster has suggested that a similar "kind" of software is available which can be placed on a more secure internal server (intranet), not easily accessible except from machines connected directly to that server.

I'm fairly sure he's describing setting up an access database using an internal SQL server. That's a very good solution since it's not much more complicated than Access in general and helps make the system multiuser.

You can limit access to the database to internal IPs.

Depending on the quantity of data there are even free tiers on Amazon EC2 with duplication.
