Does anybody know of note-taking software that offers a spreadsheet view for entering rows+columns of data? I currently have my data scattered across MyInfo (newer favourite), MyNotesKeeper (for ebooks), TreePad (legacy data), myBase (just testing), and UR (never really got into)—only this group would understand why

. I still can’t find the perfect solution! However, I’ve settled on PersonalBrain for serious thinking and ConnectedText for serious writing and reflection.

From a note-taker, I would like the ability to select “Notes” or “Spreadsheet” view when creating a new topic/node. It seems that much of my “capturing” has to do with lists of information that I would like to sort or sum/average. Anyone else have such a need? It seems that MyNotesKeeper and myBase are going through some revisions—it would be nice to see this feature added.

Thanks,
Glen

Try TreeSheets http://treesheets.com/

Maybe it’s better I don’t say… :)

Anyway, take a look at RightNote (http://www.bauerapps.com) and AM-NoteBook (http://www.aignes.com)

XLnotes (http://www.xlnotes.com), a plug in for Excel, has been mentioned here a couple of times.

It’s a good idea. Microsoft could strengthen their hand by doing something similar except instead of improving the comments field, they could have OneNote show up there.

Thanks for the advice!

1. TreeSheets—looks kinda strange; requiring a new mindset
2. RightNote—has the desired feature-set, but may be a little “kitchen-sink-ish”
3. AM-Notebook—looks clean and I like the drawing component; is it updated regularly?
4. XLNotes—I tried the first beta, but found it too buggy; maybe it’s better now

Great ideas—I’ll have to install and test for performance. Thanks again.
