Can more than one person use a Sesame database at the same time?

What if I need help?
If you need help getting started (or getting finished) there are plenty of options
. Fee-based Sesame Technical Support is available online, by email or by telephone.
There is a Support Forum where you can post questions and get answers. In addition, there are online resources (such as our Knowledge Base), a consultants listing, and FAQ, and more.
Can I use my Q&A databases?
Sesame has an excellent Q&A database translator, and the documentation includes a step-by-step Q&A Translation Guide.
In addition, once you make the switch, you will find that Sesame uses the same Retrieve (search) language as Q&A. You can also use most of the same programming language (plus more!). Sesame even uses many of the same keystrokes as Q&A: F10 to Save, F7 to Search, F3 to Delete, etc.
