"demo is very insufficient."

November 15, 2004  |  By annette4--2008

 |  Version: CatBase 5.5

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Look we all no demos that limit use to 50 records, no saving, no printing but this one beats in all - no database import in a program that is supposed to convert and import databases.

the demo is limited to their own database and the readme informs you about some warnings you might see and a non-working XML import. I do not doubt for a second that a program will work with its own ready made demo data.

But of course you want to know whether it might save YOUR time with your database, right? So I looked up what it CAN import, right, XML (ok they said so...) and dbf.
So I took care not to export more than 50 records (i used 20...) from a simple filemaker list containing names, adresses and phone numbers. Really 'complicated' task that is usually your 1st exercise in any database app. made it a dbf file that excel 98 and open.office opened without ANY complaint. yes I checked that later.

First surprise: you have to move the demo data from the Cat folder, otherwise it won't find anything.
that done, I restarted the program and was asked to open a data file. Well it does not recognise anything as readable .. so I tried ALL files.
Exit Catbase, no error nothing.
Thought I had missed something. Tried again, got rid of the phone numbers in the export file, only 4 fields now.
Doesn't even hang. Just gone. no message. so this is why there is no rating for ease of use...

Moral: I paid less for the whole filemaker. I think I'll stick to its export features and print to pdf. And Gluon's Table Maker if I really need a quark table.

"At last! An OSX version!"

 |  Version: CatBase 5.5

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
We've been using catbase for several years to produce an in-house directory. we used to do it manually, and that took ages plus there wer lots of errors in it. Since using catbase we now produce an ACCURATE directory in a couple of hours, which used to take a coupe of DAYS to do it manually!

we've been waiting for the OSX version for a while. So glad to see it released at last, plus it looks like there are a few useful new features.

Also I see that it now supports InDesign as well as Quark etc. We are thinking about switching to InDesign so this is good as well.
