We have some wonderful efforts available through fellow DVC members for DVC vacation planning and point tracking. Thank you to those great developers for offering them to us. Haven't seen a thread on this in a while, so just thought I'd check in and see if there have been any updates, or new programs available. Perhaps someone put together a great spreadsheet approach that works well? A spreadsheet approach has the possibility of also working on a PDA. Just wanted to check in.

Thank you again developers for sharing your talent for our benefit, it is greatly appreciated.

Did you do a searh for Caskbill? It seels like he had an update in the last 3 or 4 months.

A spreadsheet for the PDA would be great. For my 1 ocntract, I could probably do that myself, though.

If someone had a good excel spreadsheet, I would be really interested. It might have a chance of working on my Mac!!

If you're interested in an Excel spreadsheet, I wrote one a few years ago. It's all I use for keeping track of my point usage.

I use a combo of Caskbill's planner and Lew's tracker.....works great for me, though I'd love both in one program. However, I'm not a programmer, so I deeply appreciate the efforts of those who are.

Oh, I can put that Excel spreadsheet on my PDA? Cool....gotta try it.

Lesley - I should have been a little more specific about Palms. You need to have Quick Office or a similar programs to let you put an Excel SS on your Palm. I think I got miy Quick Office for ~$20 (that was a while ago). That lets me put Word and Excel items on my Palm.

I use Dave Fredrickson's program to manage our contracts.

And then use Caskbill's programs to plan our trips.

We do the same as JimC.
