ParaMerge - allows direct conversion from Paradox tables to
mailmerge files for WordPerfect, Wordstar, MS Word & ASCII
delimited formats.

ParaFrame - creates mainframe to Pdx and Pdx to mainframe batch processors.
ParaFrame runs signifcantly faster than the Paradox ASCII import/export option
and does not require the mainframe file to be created in any special format.

ParaFix - repairs Pdx tables and headers not even repairable by Borlands
