Basic relational capability has been added to make it easier and more intuitive for the user to retrieve and place information in other databases. Over 100 new features have been added to FILE EXPRESS. The functionality of nearly every aspect of data management -- screen definition, import/export, database size, reports, form letters, sorts -- has been expanded. Users can now edit records while in browse mode. Recognizing that one of the primary uses of a database is for mailing lists, FILE EXPRESS now has word processing capabilities. Users can write a letter from within the program and merge data from a database.

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.
