I have been experimenting with an Access database for my bell tuning 
information which is currently stored in Excel. Issues which add 
spice to the design include:
* towers which have had more than one peal in them
* bells which have been in more than one peal
* bells which have been retuned or for which I have more than one set 
of tuning data.
All of this is easy in Excel because the data is completely un-
normalised. To see a set of table definitions for an existing 
relational implementation would be useful (though I suspect it should 
go off-list!).
