Some Of The Features

Filtering & Searching

Columns in the list may be filtered (in the same way to using excel). This allows you to show only records that meet your criteria (eg only Books from 1986), making it easy to find what you want.

Grouping lets you arrange your records in a folder like structure by common data. A common way to group Books would be by Genre then by Author providing a folder like structure where you could open a Genre then view all the Authors for that Genre; then you could open the Author folder to view the records.

Layout changing/saving

Show or Hide fields, change their order in both the list and the form view. This layout may then be saved for future use.

Advanced Record Copying

Copy record allows you to duplicate a records data into a new record. It also allows you to setup a default copy rule so you only copy the information you want. Great for when you are adding many of the same type of records.

Drop Down Data Lists

Drop down data lists are user definable drop down lists for easy data insertion. Many fields use the same values repeatedly e.g. Author, Publisher and Genre. By using a drop down data list you can add values that are used frequently to the list making it quicker and easier to add information.
