Subject: [birders] OT -- need advice on developing a spreadsheet for birding records

Grosse Pointe Audubon annually holds the Grosse Pointe Birding Challenge, a fun competition where teams from the five Grosse Pointes compete to find as many bird species as they can in a morning.

We now have 12 years of data and it's time to memorialize it a format that is accessible and potentially useful. I am thinking putting the data in a spreadsheet, but I have absolutely no idea how to format it. We need species, date, and location -- across a 12-year horizon and scalable to add future data.

If anybody has any advice on formatting, I would be happy to listen -- off list, of course,

Thank you!
