In the autumn we told you we had been working on a Microsoft Access version of the Green Form. A few people got in touch and we sent out some copies. We got a bit of feedback and are a bit happier to put it out on general release. I'm not great on Access but it has been incredibly useful to me and others. I managed to write 26 different green forms in only 90 minutes. I realise that the Microsoft Access green form won't be for everyone. In fact I am sure it will only be of help other AAP's or those who are a bit tech savvy and have large quantities (>50) of green forms a year to fill in.
After reporting (boasting) about my success using the Access database on the DofE Leaders UK Facebook group someone mentioned that they had a version in Excel. Their excel version wasn't really ready for external use so I decided to have a go at making one myself. It only took a couple of hours and I think that it will be really useful to just about anyone who wants to fill in a green form quickly. I think that Excel is a far better programme fro this sort of thing than Word.
Both the Access and Excel versions are available for download from our website. The Excel version is password protected to make filling it in easier but I understand that you may want to copy huge chunks from one to another which will probably mean you need the password which is 'lupine'
If you have any feedback on either of these files then please do get in touch.
