Some of the many uses for NeoBookDBPro include:

  • Create custom applications that provide employees with full, limited or read-only access to corporate data. Access to tables can be restricted to protect critical data from being modified or deleted.
  • Add database functionality to existing or new NeoBook projects to facilitate easy storeage and retrieval of application settings, account information and data.
  • Use a database like MS Access to create a unique file format for your application. Just change the file extension from .mdb to something unique - like .zap. This will allow you to store just about any kind of data your application uses or creates without the limitations and hassle of working with plain text files. Since MS Access functionality is built into all versions of Windows, your application will work on any Windows-based PC.
  • Use a database to store questions and answers for computer-based training (CBT) and quizzes. Add our NeoBookFM/FTP plug-in to automatically download new questions or upload answers to your server for grading.
  • Basic NeoBookDBPro contact database

  • Use an encrypted databases to store proprietary or sensitive application information. For example, an application could use an encrypted database to to store account infomration such as user names and passwords.
  • Create customize catalogs to inventory music, DVD, photography, postage stamp, memorabilia or other collections. The catalog database can include photos of each item, a description, value, date acquired, location, or anything else you need.
  • Use a database to store source files used by your applications. For example, an application that generates web content could use a database to store a selection of clipart, page templates, JavaScript, etc. No need to update the application to add new source files - simply provide the user with a replacement database instead.
  • Use as a compliment to an existing MS Access, Oracle, mySQL, etc. database. Create a stand-alone application to process data or provide access to specific information. Save time and money by providing a custom application for users don't need the full version of Access or Oracle.
  • Create your own customized version of just about any type of business database application. For example: point of sale (POS), order processing, contact management, customer relationship management, inventory tracking, etc. Of course, depending on the complexity, this might not be a trivial project
  • And much more...
