Managing survey data...what am I doing wrong?

When I started data collecting (may moons ago) we used the standard format with an ASCII file and a RAW data file. I use worksheets for section breakdowns and block breakdowns in subdivisions so there is no double calculations etc. These ASCII files are getting quite large nowadays with some approaching over 20,000 points (data dating back to 1990). These ASCII's contain all the points from control points, to property corner monuments, to field located items (edge of pavement, power poles, house corners etc.) to calculations (property corner calcs, deed calcs etc.). My question is, how do many of you manage this data?...
