      RDBMS and application development system. Creates customized
      applications without need for programming. Includes mouse support,
      multi-file data entry and multi-record scrollable regions on forms.
      Includes real-time and conditional posting, cascading, conditional and
      filtered lookups, referential integrity, colors on forms, summary
      values in field rules and on forms, custom view/browse menus, lookup
      and summary database functions and scripting commands.- 
      A fully-relational database that includes custom menus, sub-menus,
      passwords, macros and help messages. Features 128 fields and 4,000
      characters per record, two billion records per database, forms, browse
      tables, field rules, lookup tables and databases, indexes and search
      and update. Non-programmers can design customized applications by
      completing an outline of the application's menu choices. The user
      creates sets linking up to ten related databases allowing information
      to be accessed in multiple databases simultaneously. Once the set is
      defined, the user can create forms, mailing labels, letters and
      searches. Forms display one record at a time, and can be used to
      view, edit and enter records. Lookup tables provide a list of choices
      for a field, or restrict the entries in a field. Supports over 50
      mathematical, string, date and logical expressions. Allows the user
      to create up to seven indexes per database, and store up to 26 saved
      searches. The package includes a WYSIWYG report layout screen and a
      quick set-up feature. The user can create up to nine levels of
      grouping within a report. The multi-pass feature allows summary
      fields to be defined as pre-processed. Defining values and validation
      expressions, and cross-checking data provide data entry
      error-protection.
