what data is relevant for recording stringing jobs?

I keep records on a spring-bound notebook with: user, date, racquet model and size, string type and gauge, tension of both mains and crosses and the length of string used (mains and crosses or total length and short-side length). are there other data relevant?

does anyone know of a database software designed for this purpose?

thanks.

rgds,

I also keep track of the length of the leftover mains and crosses. This is useful if you are trying to squeeze out one more racquet with a short piece of string.

yeah, i do that too... but i just adjust accordingly when i do the same model next time...

i try to eke out the most out of a reel... and i get at least 19 sticks out of a 660' reel...and i sometimes even get 20 and 1/2 sticks out of it...

Besides the already good responses you received, I also record the string bed frequency as the racket comes off the machine, racket weight (grams), swingweight, stringbed frequency 24 hours later if I still have the racket, Price charged for service, and in the miscellaneous notes other services are entered - ie regrip etc. It's also informational to etch a unique number on the buttcap for customers who have multiple identical frames. I use Excel and Access, but any spreadsheat software is just as good - Lotus123, Quattro Pro, etc.

I just keep all that in a Quattro Pro file. I hate Excel :P

I use excel, it also calculates the price paid for the stringing minus cost of string for all my customers.

I also use Excel. Columns for NAME, DATE, RACKET, STRING, TENSION OF MAINS, TENSION OF CROSS, PRICE, OTHER (grips, a reason I may have reduced the price, or comments made by the player).

I use the Software STRINGING PRO and it works very well.
it has string reports, clients reports, clients database and a lot of things.
