1. You can easily switch to Editabula from spreadsheet used as a substitute for database.
So many potential database users escape to spreadsheet applications, as they feel there's no easy way to handle database even for simple requirements. Spreadsheet is easy to start, but it is not meant for works that repeat data entry. It takes considerable time for starting, loading, and saving. The more records accumulated, the more frustration you feel. Why not switch to Editabula? You can create a database just by entering file name and label; table just by listing up the fields and assigning an index; menu by assigning the table. Restart Editabula and check out your brand-new database application. You can add tables and functionalities as needed. It's also easy to import csv files.
2. Editabula incorporates major processing patterns used in database applications.
This means that you don't have to describe those.
1) Form you need for displaying and editing data is automatically generated as you run a table, and serves for you with assorted functionalities. If you need a form to edit records on two different tables that link, just define it using the form designer where you assign tables and master table, locate visual components and assign table and field on each component. That's all. Run the form and check out the functionalities.
2) If you need a process to add or update records on a table by records on the other table, you can define the process by assigning major parameters like table and then corresponding parameters like data mapping. Editabula presents processing patterns, so you just give them parameters.
3) There might be a case where a value must be displayed or assigned in accordance with a date, as in sales price, tax rate, or address; Imagine another case where drilldown functionality should be preferably added on fields like "Balance carried", "Net change" and "Balance" in monthly summary records. Such functionalities can be easily implemented in a simple way with Editabula.
