For those of you that use coin management databases, what do you store? Just the key dates or do you store all the coins. For example if you have the Mercury dimes, do you just track the 16D and 1921 and 1921 D or all the coins?

You're not storing, you're entering data.
Why would you buy a coin database to just enter key dates? You can do that with paper and pencil.
What do you mean track? You are entering your entire inventory. The denominations, numbers of each coin the dates, conditions and prices.

Use a spreadsheet (I use Excel). Most people have one. Then you can have your inventory include whatever info you want. And you can add/delete/modify the contents whenever you want. You can even include links to any images you made of the coins.
And since it's highly likely that you already have the software, it's free.
Describe it as if there were no picture. Picture it as if there were no description.
I don't want to have to figure out how to create an excel spreadsheet from scratch when I've never used the excel program much and unexperienced with it. I would rather have a plug and play type format ready to go, enter data with pictures with built-in supporting database on all usa coins.
