What is File Express?

File Express is a database management program written for the IBM Personal 
Computer and PC-compatible computers.  Using File Express, information 
of virtually any kind can be put into the computer, printed, sorted, 
displayed and reported.  For example, a list of names and addresses can be 
entered, then they can be sorted into zip code sequence or last name 
sequence, printed out onto mailing labels, and updated as the list changes.  
The same data can be included in reports, or simply displayed on the 
computer screen when needed.  Customized form letters can also be written 
in File Express by merging names from the database file with a letter. 

File Express is very popular among first-time database users and non-
technical users.  But as File Express has continued to be improved over 
the last six years, it has also become very powerful.  Some of its early 
first-time  users have advanced to true "power users" and we have
addressed their  needs too, while maintaining the simplicity of the manual 
and the software.
