HyperCard, meet dBASE

At Macworld Expo, Symmetry Software demonstrated Dashboard DB, a HyperCard toolkit that will allow developers to create front-ends to large, pre-existing database in dBASE format. The toolkit, which is schedule to ship in June, will cost $129 and will give HyperCard the ability to modify and search for records in dBASE format databases. Hopefully, the availability of Dashboard DB will help the Macintosh gain a foothold in companies locked into PC platforms due to the format of their databases. Similar products are available to allow HyperCard to interact with Oracle databases, Omnis 5 databases, and databases created with ACIUS's 4th Dimension.
