Edition can certainly
take you to a world where information is well-organized, easy to store,

place - to a level of information management freedom and flexibility you

Alventis Professional comes with everything Alventis Standard has to offer,
to which it adds Alventis Designer (or simply Designer) - a perfect companion
Alventis Designer is remarkably simple. Its sole, yet monumental
purpose is to let you create and modify tables and data-entry forms. Which,
of course, affords you with the ultimate database management tool there
Designer offers you a modern Integrated Development Environment
which allows you to define and alter table structures, and create
forms based on these tables. What sets it apart is that almost all Designer's
power is harnessed with a few mouse clicks and drags-and-drops. There
is no code to write, and no macro language to learn. So you can make your
first steps in mere minutes, and become productive in a remarkably short
Defining a table is very straightforward. All you need
to do is specify what fields of what types the table should have. Designer
supports numerous data types that should satisfy even a seasoned database
professional: various numeric types, string/text, rich memos, graphics,
Once the table is defined, creating a matching data-entry
form is a breeze: just drag the fields and drop them onto the form! This
simple and natural act creates form controls or items appropriate for
the field they represent. And once the controls, labels, panels, grids,
and pictures are in place, you're in for another surprise unique to Alventis
Designer: there are no cryptic properties to adjust to make things look
and work the way you want. Everything is accomplished using formatting
tools familiar to you from most modern word processors. So, once again,
the learning curve is greatly reduced, and you are free to design some
of the best data-entry forms in the industry - naturally and effortlessly.
As conceptually simple as Designer is, it has quite
a few more features "up
its sleeve". You can work concurrently with as many things as you
want, e.g., multiple tables and multiple forms - even if they belong to
different databases, perhaps even different servers. You can specify default
values and data-validation conditions. You can create powerful relational
database solutions with unprecedented ease. You can create calculated
fields. You can quickly create elegant, flexible, resizable forms that
will make data-entry a pleasure.
