    Are there database templates for either Pages or Numbers? Right now I keep my account/sign-in info in a simple alphabetically organized, secure TextEdit doc. I'm thinking about sticking it in a database. Looking for suggestions. Thanks

    Here is a pretty good list of databases at Pure Mac. Any thoughts on why Appleworks should not be used? :)

    Using a purpose built password manager such as 1Password is a good way to go. 1Password for example has built in support for DropBox (sync your database across all Macs, Windows PCs and iDevices), as well as plug ins for Safari and Firefox.

    In Pages, you could add a Table to the page with 3 columns (Site, username, password).

    In Numbers, you don't really need a template do you? just use the blank template with the same 3 columns.

    AppleWorks is obsolete, having been replaced by iWork long ago. FileMaker, or the lighter version Bento would be the database replacements.
