Database programs let you store, retrieve, organise and analyse all sorts of data -- from complex billing records to home-video collections. FileMaker Pro 6.0 lets you manage vast quantities of such information and also allows you to share this information quickly with other applications. FileMaker's attractive, straightforward interface and relatively low £219 (ex. VAT) price make it easier and more economical than Microsoft’s Access. We heartily recommend this database program for everyone: although it's simple enough for novices, it also supplies sophisticated, higher-end features that will suit database veterans.
