[Drosophila] Database for Lab Stocks

I am curious to know what other labs use to catalogue
the various stocks they have in their labs. I am in the process
ofdeveloping a stock database for the lab i am in and wanted to make
sure i am not re-inventing the wheel. I have searched around a bit and
could not find any commercial solution to do what i want.
The database i have built up (in access as that is what all the
computers here have on them) contains a range of information such is;
original source, stock number, genotype, location in the lab (box number
and coordinates). When stocks are entered they are classified by a
number of paramaters allowign a user to recall stocks in great detail.
For example a user could serach for all GAL4 stocks on the second
chromosome, or get really complicated and search for say all stocks that
have a GFP on the second chromosome, a FRT on the 3rd and a LacZ on the
X. Also it is possible to search just by gene name as well.
