I apologize if this topic has been breached before, but I am wondering what everyone uses to document their collection. Any particular software? I tried Comic Collector about 10 years ago and found it unwieldy. I currently keep a spreadsheet in Excel, and I am currently working on an Access form to use the spreadsheet database.

This is my sig.There are many like it but this one is mine.
Call me Oak,Oakland,Oakman,David or Dave,just don't call me a cab. Every collection,from the most valuable Golden age,to the readiest of reading copy Moderns,is assembled with care and thought,and is worthy of respect because of it,if for no other reason.RMA

Just updating in this thread. I am a mac-user, and was looking for something I could access on my iPhone if I were out and needed to see if I had a comic in my collection, etc.
Booxter and Collectorz both did not work for me (Booxter's app didn't work and Collectorz wouldn't import data) so I opted for a spreadsheet.
After importing my information, I store my file on Dropbox, and I can access it at work, home or on my iPhone. Works amazingly well. I wish it had the functionality of Booxter or Collectorz, but I can live with it.
BTW, I despise Microsoft products, I installed iWork's Numbers, and it is way friendlier than Excel.
