Looking for a DOS Database

Looking for a DOS Database

I recently upgraded my HP 95LX to 1MB to be able to run some DOS database programs. I am looking for a programmable database with import and export capabilities, and it would be a bonus if it were relational.

4-You Software has just introduced a program called Info Manager, which looks as though it might do the job. What other options do I have?

[You have many choices for databases on the 95LX. To begin with take a look at PHONE databases, page 31 this issue. Also take a look at Lotus 123, a built-in data base that is many times overlooked (see page 53, Jan/Feb 93, Basic Tips). Also look at @Base, a Lotus add-in database (see Quick Tips, page 50 of the Sept/Oct issue). We've heard good things about Info Manager, but have not yet tested it.

Other database products for the 95LX include the following: We have had reports of people using dBase III on a RAM card Pocket Sales Force offers client tracking with customizable data base features (see page 8 of the May/June 92 issue) Useful Notes (ON DISK ICON) is a free-form notes-based program (see page 10 of the July/Aug 92 issue) fastNOTES is a system-compliant version of Useful Notes from ACE Technologies (see ad, page 39) QA Palm is a screen generator for the 95LX, letting you collect data on the 95LX and later download it to a PC for analysis and manipulation with a dBASE-compatible program (see ad, page 30); InfoSelect, a free-form database, (see page 35 of the Jan/Feb 93 issue); EFMS (ON DISK ICON), Everyone's File Management System, a flat-file database (see page 46 of the Sep/ Oct 92 issue); and KIV, Keep In View, a free-form database & outliner (see page 48 of the Sep/ Oct 92 issue of The HP Palmtop Paper). We intend a more thorough comparison in upcoming issues.
