America’s conversation place for mineral owners

Does anyone have a good mineral interest (or royalty) tracking spreadsheet?  Or free website?  I don't own enough to justify paying for it, but would like to keep everything well documented and organized.

Hi, Danna - 

Most company websites have links to pages where you can track your data and possibly download it into Excel or other types of spreadsheets for free. 


Are you referring to the operator's websites?  Neither of mine have this info, so I'll have to look elsewhere.  I have something basic, but I'm sure it could be more sophisticated. Maybe it'll evolve with my knowledge and experience.


Set up two data bases to meet you needs. A PARCEL STATUS DB by State, county, parcel and another for WELL DATA by parcel and API number.  Post data to them periodically using subcategories that suit your needs.  From the two data bases, you can sort and transfer to spread sheets for analysis at will.  Commercial programs are so detailed that you soon become a slave to data input for no logical reason.  Remember that your data input is the only data input that is reliable.

Wow, I more ignorant than I realized.  What is a parcel status?  I do know how to create a database and can see the benefit of having the two you suggested.  

Thank you for asking this and thank you for the replies. I've been wondering  about this myself. Good info.

There seems to be such a need for this, I will post the one that I developed on Excel for my use.  Give me a couple of days to make sure that I have a clean copy with no hidden identifiers and I will blog post it here.

Thank you!  I'm looking forward to seeing it too!  I have created one, but I'm sure I'm missing some things and perhaps it could be better organized!  I have zero experience so I'd love to learn from you (and everyone else).

Great idea!!!

Buddy - were you able to post this?  I can't find it.


Not able to find the file. Was it ever posted? Thanks so much for all you do on here. 

Buddy, you rock! Look forward to your Excel post. I know there are many others on the forum that will appreciate it also. Linton

Everything Buddy adds to The Forum Rocks.  Just don't tell him I said so or it will go to his head.
