We use the Q&A database (DOS version - don't know if there is a windows one) to
organise our 3000-odd strains.  Set up a form with the fields you want, and
there you go...  Q&A may not be the best database (searches aren't very
flexible and table output limited somewhat by size of columns) but it works.
