    Is there any (free) program that allows you to keep count of tickets in the house, with a diagram?

    Wow Freeware box office software. Now that would be a novel Idea. We just spent close to $200K on Tessitura and the associated hardware.
    Good luck.

    You could probably do that if you're a wiz at excel or access or filemaker. I know that I could probably do it with access. Kinda convoluted, but it might work!

    Hmmm the system we were one was developed by us and used 4d. Not my favorite software , and incapable of handling the 5k+ subscribers and all the single ticket sales, I should ask someone to see what we are doing with the program. Maybe we should post it somewhere as a freeware BO software. It was buggy but not too bad.

    If you could describe all the features you are looking for, I could make you a program to do just that! I need to practice for State anyways.

    We are not wanting a "full" box office software, all we need is an interface of a diagram of tshe house with clickable seats so we can keep in account what seats we have available, becaue we have never sold advance tickets with row and seats before, we do not need a program to print the tickets just to organize the seating information, thanks

    If you can send me a picture of the layout of your house, I'll see what I can do.

    If you don't want it to do anything but make place holders... an excel document would do that perfectly....

    You beat me to it !
    Post a pic of your house I bet a ton of guys could build you a spreadsheet or even an HTML document in no time.
    and by pic I mean a seating chart, you gotta have one of those lying around.

    Kinda hard to have clickable seats if you can't tell the program where your seats are, in my opinion... ;)

    If you get to this before you find a layout, how many seats does your house have, approximately? I'm just getting a head start on the programming...

    Just give me a seating layout or something like what TupeloTechieKid said. I'll whip something up for you too.


    Thanks I can make that work!

    I can do it without the seating chart, but Vectorworks had a specific tool for making seating layouts.

    TupeloTechieKid, did you forget row I, or does it not exist? Or did you screw up your lettering?

    The house manager gave me the Info, I do not believe there is a Row "I", There is a walk way between "H" and "J", I believe that when they numbered the seats, they labeled the walkway "I" to sell handicapped seats on the row, but later 6 seats were taken out on row H to accommodate handicapped seating, Thanks
