Alpha Five

Out favorite database, Alpha Five, is just out in Version 8. It has been our favorite for many years because it’s easy to use and at least as powerful as the offerings from Microsoft and others. One of the strengths we like is the ability to define rules for data entry that prevent people from typing in absurd or contradictory information and warn them they are about to enter something that doesn’t seem to fit the data. The database can reside on a desktop computer or the Web.

New features include faster creation of custom databases, color gradients for a pro look and security zones. You can create different security levels for access to either the whole database or parts. These levels can be accessed through codes that are meant just for individuals or for groups.

The program lists for $199 in its most basic configuration, and you can get more info at the Web site:AlphaFive.com. No programming skills required.
