Contents of the READ.ME file
In November 1985, I distributed to various BBS's two files
containing dBASE II and dBASE III tips, tricks, hints and techniques
(DB2TIPS.ARC and DB3TIPS.ARC). Users of these files will recall that
I compiled and editted a variety of articles from various magazines
and other sources which I had found to be helpful in using dBASE 2/3.
This DB3TIPS2.ARC file is a continuation of the earlier tips
files. The tips and tricks in this file were taken from a variety
of magazine articles over the first 6 months of 1986. As before, I
take NO personal credit for authoring any of the items. I did take
certain liberties in editting the articles. Nevertheless, attribution
is properly given in all instances.
The various files contained in DB3TIPS2.ARC were prepared using
WordStar in nondocument (ASCII) mode. This DB3TIPS2.ARC file is
arranged with the following categories.
ATDB3NTS.TXTAshton-Tate dBASE III reference notes from the
Ashton-Tate Support Library CompuServe
DB3NTS.TXTMore dBASE III notes and tips. Source unknown but
believed to be Ashton-Tate again (perhaps
DB3MATH.TXTMath functions in dBASE III
DB3MISC.TXTAll the other miscellaneous tips and tricks
