StampBase for Windows is a stamp collection inventory system for the hobbyist.

StampBase for Windows is a shareware software product. STAMPB.EXE is a
self-extracting file containing the compressed files required to use StampBase
for Windows. STAMPB.EXE was created using the software program LHA (Copyright
1990-1991 by Haruyasu Yoshizaki).

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS: IBM PC or compatible 80286, 386 or 486 with 2 MB RAM, a
hard drive and Microsoft Windows 3.0 or higher. Program supports mouse and
keyboard.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION

StampBase takes advantage of the Windows' Graphical User Interface (GUI) and
its memory management capabilities. StampBase is a Windows application. The
program will not work outside the Windows environment.

StampBase provides intuitive data entry, edit, query and browse features. The
following information can be entered for each stamp: country, catalog number,

category (type), issue year, description, grade, purchase date, cost, market
value and comments. Information is sorted and indexed on most fields.
Reports display records and collection statistics on screen on in printed hard
copy. Create one or more database files containing an unlimited number of
stamp records.

The file format was changed in this new version. This means Version 1.5
cannot properly read Version 1.0 files. The file format change was due to
program enhancements requested by registered users. We created an import
utility for you to convert your 1.0 files to the 1.5 format. The import
utility is available to registered users.

This is NOT free software. This is NOT public domain software. StampBase for
Windows is a shareware software product. You are expected to pay a $24.95
registration fee plus shipping and to the author if you find it useful.
Registered users receive the latest version of the program, a printed User's
Guide, free technical support and notification of program updates and
upgrades. A registration form is included in the program.
