      questions about data without the need for programming. Delivers
      answers using a built-in query optimizer. Using Borland's proprietary

      its hardware environment and configures itself for maximum
      performance. SQL Link provides secure, transparent access to data
      residing on SQL database servers. Communicates with database servers

      grouping. Variables and functions may be embedded within reports and
