Stock List in A4 Landscape Word Format (as at May 2017)

The stock lists show all stock in County order, by location and are split into Geographic areas, which should be more manageable outside. There are also several other reports further down and more may be added later.

The reports are downloadable as a zipped Word file (' rtf' ), so you will need something like WinZip or jZip to access the document and almost any version of Microsoft Word or Open Office to be able to open and read them.  As I’ve tried to squeeze in as much information as possible, you should use the ‘Find’ option in Microsoft Word ( ‘ctrl+F’ or the ‘binocular’ icon) to find anything specific like a Location quickly, rather than scrolling through tens or hundreds of pages.  The stock list is normally updated annually as time permits. 


Click the link for the area that you want. These Area reports are designed to give a lot of detail per record and are ideally useful for reference, so they have been laid out in Landscape format and you may have to change the settings of your printer. You can print them if you wish, but expect to use a lot of ink and paper!  Another option, is to open a new blank document and copy/paste locations you are visiting.  Remember to set the margins per the original report first.

This is very much a work in progress and only the complete list is available for now. Steves original DB had to be completely redesigned to not only accommodate a better search facility but also to generate a better report structure.
