While I have not downloaded the product I did take a serious look at its documentation. Here are my conclusions based on is documentation. The product is a flat file database. It is not relational. I base this on the fact that there was no mention of multiple tables in a file or key fields. Printout seems to me limited to WYSIWYG. I saw no mention of report layouts or creating custom forms for input. Conclusion: I see no distinct advantage that this application has over a spreadsheet - not even considering its low cost. While Excel and Numbers are considerably more expensive, NeoOffice and Open Office are free. If I am wrong about my assessment of this product I would encourage a user or the developer to enlighten or correct my impressions of this product as a reply. This is not to say this is a bad or useless product - only that with its current feature set as based on its documentation, it seems a bit redundant.

QuickTables does support multiple tables, sorry if the documentation was not clear on that. Also, QuickTables uses the SQLite database for data storage so it is capable of using key fields. But the purpose of the program is to be a simple way of managing small to medium size lists so I did not include it. This is definitely something that can be added in the future if there is demand for it. Yes, Excel, Numbers, etc... can do the same thing, but when you don't need all the overhead and functionality of a big spreadsheet, QuickTables is much more convenient and easier to use, in my opinion. I appreciate your comments. I do have plans for adding enhanced printing and custom forms for input in future versions.

Thank you for your clarification on this. Sounds like the product has much promise. Making too simple and having it act like a flat file db, w/o a report generator, does seem to make it a bit redundant to me for those who already have spreadsheets. What is needed for the Mac is a product with Access like features, but please not the GUI, for an affordable price. Filemaker is great but at $300 a copy, with $200 updates it is just to expensive for the typical single user.Bento is a step in the right direction but lacks merge capability and good report generation. The various incantations of SQL can do the job, are affordable, but almost require a degree in computer science to use them. And 4D, well - its 4D, big powerful, expensive and focused toward enterprise customers. That leaves a big hole in the Mac software portfolio for someone to fill. Create an easy to use powerful relational database and an affordable price for individuals. Are you up to the task?

Hmmm.... not asking for much there, are you? :-) You have got me thinking about developing a QuickTables Pro edition that would include many of the features you are describing, but it would take some time.

I suspect time is on your side. Other than Filemaker I do not know of any other user friendly general purpose relational db targeted to individual users that as ever been written for the Mac platform. Filemaker used to be affordable quite a while ago. However for most individual home based users, that is no longer the case at $300. I believe their is a marketing and sales opportunity here for someone. If someone came out with a Bento like product with good forms and report capability with mail merge for around $100 I suspect they would own that market. Such a product could easily replace the majority of specialized shareware databases that run $10-$50 each. For $100 you could coin your own to your own specifications for whatever need you have for as many purposes as you need. I believe the market is their - waiting for someone to fill it. Given how you have described your core product it sounds like a good opportunity for you if you have an interest in doing it and a willingness to following through on it. All I have done is raised the flag, It is entirely up to you to take the suggestion as you wish. Personally I think that this could be a gold mine for someone but then again I could be completely wrong. Whatever you decide, I wish you success in your endeavors.
