[BCAB] DATABASE APPLICATION Steve Bingham 28 Sep 2011 10:47 BST


Does anybody know of a reasonably accessible alternative to Microsoft

I have a fairly substantial database at present running on a very old
version of dBase III in an DOS window on a Windows XP computer. It has
survived several computer upgrades but has now reached the end of the line
because our new computers are all 64-bit machines and, of course, the old
dBase III will not run on them.

The database consists of three main tables each with multiple indexes and a
number of subtables.

I have spent some time contemplating switching to Microsoft Access but I
have find that it is too formal and not really accessible enough. I could
use it but not very happily.

Any suggestions would be welcome.
