I use microsoft word and have all of the information for my carded figures in tidy little tables consisting of five columns and hundreds of rows. I have a table for every collection, ie. Orange Card, Green Card, FF's, Saga Card #1, Saga Card #2 and so on.
In each row from left to right I list the name of the figure, as it appears on the card, then I list accesories/special features/Autographed in the second column. Then I list card # or production number, then release date. Below is an example ONLY:
ANAKIN SKYWALKER Peasant Disguise `02`01 4-02 comPADME’ AMIDAL Arena Escape `02`02 4-02
OBI-WAN KENOBI Coruscant Chase `02`03 4-02
