Program for fly stocks ??

A specialized program for handling fly stocks would be great...A useful
additive to the program would be a universal feature which can recognize
various synonyms of a stock. This feature would allow the worker to
enter stocks and be able to cross-reference them to the same stock number
at a stock center (i.e. Bloomington). That way, via the internet,
all researchers could compose a "master" list of stocks old and new (like
new transpositions) that would suit the needs of all. My experience with
Filemaker Pro has been O.K. Although, cross-referencing stocks from
published papers to those maintained by stock centers is a big problem.
To counter this problem, every page of Filemaker Pro has to contain two
stock numbers that can be sorted to handle new stocks within the lab.
Anyway, I am really exited that this has become an issue. Keep me
informed and I will talk to others.
