Default Is there a good field report app?

Hi all,
I just got a contract to handle a small (21 station) network. And they want me to track hours in details on all work each month.
Is there a tool that I can use that would make this easy that I could put on a pocket pc or something like that?

Ideally, I would like it to track problem, hours spent, problem details, what computer, etc...

You should be able to use a MS-Access pre-made template for this. You could also just use a spread-sheet with 4-5 columns to accomplish this. Just give them a good looking report every month.

The official program for this type of recording is called Microsoft Project.

But for just keeping track of hours onsite its a little overkill, just use a spreadsheet.
