DBF Manager Provides Enhanced Performance in Version 2.0

April 29, 2008: Astersoft Co. announces the release of DBF Manager 2.0, a new update of the popular .DBF editor specifically designed for viewing, editing and printing .DBF files.

The new version delivers bug-free performance and sparkles with such significant innovations as structure checking when importing from a .DBF file and newly added Binary and OLE types to dBase IV structure. Moreover, users can now view information about active index in a table print. Aside from improvements associated with the newly added functions, the DBF Manager upgrade sorts columns better than earlier releases and is able to export files to text or CSV. In addition, some shortcuts have been changed for more convenience.

Unique to version 2.0 is a visual report generator based on the FASTREPORT engine, which lets you create comprehensive reports quickly and efficiently. This report generator is only available to the buyers of the business license.

DBF Manager works with .DBF files of different kinds. Typically if a company uses databases created in different systems such as Clipper, dBase, FoxPro, the engineers have to look at them or modify using several different utilities. DBF Manager is designed as a one-stop solution and allows you to open .DBF files of different types and if needed, make changes with a minimum of overhead work, without stepping out of the familiar interface.

The program lets you do most any operation: add, delete, recall, sort, zap and pack records, search and replace, view and edit files, get detailed database information. It allows you to set relation between two tables, import from CSV, TXT file formats and export to SQL, CSV, TXT, XLS, and HTML. There is a handy multi-document interface, which does not require much time to learn. It offers all you need for comfortable .DBF browsing and editing.
