Project configuration

Projects are entirely optional but they make it easy to keep all your settings (labels, data sources etc) together. And you can easily switch from one project to another.


Data Editing

Data can be viewed or edited and new records can be added - irrespective of which database the data is stored in e.g. MySQL, SQLite, MS Access etc. Very large datasets can be displayed.


Making a Table

All your tables can be made from the same dialog. You can easily change your mind or experiment until you get the exact table you want.

Simple Frequency Tables

Making Simple Frequency Tables

While interacting with the data you can see a demonstration table changing in sync with your changes. This makes it easier to design the table before running it.

Complex Nested Tables

Complex nested tables can be made easily. These use the labels you select and can be styled with simple style sheets. The output can be directly pasted into a spreadsheet.
