DataWorks: xBase file Manager for Windows
Clipper .ntx version
May 1992 Version 1.29

The following xBase function has been added to 1.29:
TRIM(Char_Value) trims spaces on the right of the char expr

Help file has been updated and recompiled.

DataWorks is SHAREWARE. After a thirty day evaluation period, if you
continue to use DataWorks, you are required to register the product
and include a license fee of $49.95 U.S. by check, money order, Visa
or Mastercard. A registration form may be found at the end of this

DataWorks is designed as an xBase power user's tool to be used by
developers building applications with VXBASE for Visual Basic.
VXBASE may be found on the bulletin board that carries DataWorks.
It is uploaded as two files. The latest release is composed of
files (documentation) and (vxbase.dll).

DataWorks documentation is contained entirely in an extensive
Windows Help file accessible from the main DataWorks menu.

(1) Unzip with pkunzip

(2) Three more zip files appear

DWMASTER.ZIP an empty DataWorks data dictionary set
to be loaded and unzipped into any
directory that contains or will contain
xBase files. Retain this file to set up
new xBase locations that are accessible
through DataWorks.

VXBTEST.ZIP If you currently have vxBase, move this
file to \VB\VXBTEST and unzip it. It
contains DataWorks dictionary definitions
for the sample database that comes with

DWINDOWS.ZIP contains dwx.exe, dwxdll.dll, dw.ini,
and dwhelp.hlp. Move this file to your
\WINDOWS directory and unzip. These are
the actual program and supplementary files.

(2) New Users
copy DWMASTER to any directory on your hard drive that
contains Clipper databases (or to a new directory
if you want to create new databases).

Every directory that you wish to access with DataWorks
MUST HAVE ITS OWN COPY of the master dictionary files.

vxBase Users
If you wish to experiment with DataWorks, and have a copy
of vxBase, move the VXBTEST.ZIP file to \VB\VXBTEST and
unzip (don't copy DWMASTER there).

Existing Users NOTE:
If you are upgrading an existing copy of DataWorks,
DO NOT UNZIP DWMASTER over top of your current dictionary
files. You will lose all current dictionary information.

Running DataWorks

(1) Bring up Windows and add DWX.EXE to a program group
(or run it with the RUN command). The password is
MASTER. Enter a startup directory where you have
placed a copy of the DataWorks dictionary files (i.e.,
unzipped DWMASTER). If you are running the sample
vxBase data set, enter \vb\vxbtest as the directory.

You can alter the initial size of the files directory
screen. When you exit, the size you set will be saved.

(2) If there are existing database files in the directory
you specified, you can add them to the DataWorks
dictionary with the File Import Dbf menu command.
