Learn more about Sesame Database ManagerI was very impressed when I got my copy of Sesame, to see such extensive PRINTED documentation. Not often you get this much paper with a software package. And, the manuals are on the CD, so you can use Adobe Reader (Free program) to search the manuals for topics you want to read about.
Sesame Database Manager is compatible with Symantec Q&A. Q & A users will find that Sesame uses many of the same keystrokes, the same search syntax, and almost the same programming syntax as used in a Q&A database. Sesame can also translate Q&A databases. Find out more.
With Sesame you place your information fields right on the form you're designing — you don't have to create a database or table separately. You specify the kind information you're tracking, including general text, multi-line (memo), date, time, money, image, yes/no, keyword, and subform, and Sesame helps you keep your data consistent and accurate. Use checkboxes, radio buttons, pick-lists and command buttons to suit the kind of data entry and browsing you need. [READ MORE...]
Expand your database as you expand
You don't need to be an experienced database designer to get up and running quickly with Sesame. You can start with a simple five-minute data entry form if you like and immediately begin adding and searching your data. As you work with your application, you'll think of ways a task might be simplified or even automated. Sesame makes easy to add features and customization as you go. If your application is used by others, they can continue to use it while you make your design changes. Sesame comes bundled with a variety of sample applications you can draw on for ideas and solutions. [READ MORE...]
Find information in seconds
The ability to find information fast is one of the most important uses of any database manager. With Sesame, you search using your familiar data entry form. For example, to retrieve the Ed Jones record, you simply type Ed Jones in the Name field. Sesame offers a full set of conveniently-accessible tools to specify and adjust your retrieved records until you have exactly the ones you're after. Search tools include regular searches, additive searches, subtractive searches, drilldown searches, inverted searches, universal searches, and find-first-match" searches. [READ MORE...]
Sort your information quickly
All the searching and sorting options you'll ever need are right there on the same screen where your records display. You can sort retrieved records in ascending or descending order using single or multiple sort criteria. You can step through retrieved records one at a time, or switch to table view where an entire group of records can be seen at a glance in a spreadsheet-like layout. [READ MORE...]
