"inqVista" is easy to use software that will help you design your own database.  Design your database to track and manage Records, Images, Contracts, Inventory, Projects and other information that you need for fast look-up and reference.

"inqVista" includes the capability to relate images and pictures to your records.  For example, you may relate a picture of an employee, a part, a product, an animal, even a building and all of its rooms to that items information.  Then with a simple mouse click, that image is opened along with the record.

Some of inqVista's users that have contacted us about their successful use of inqVista are pawn shops, coin shops, antique and gift stores and foreclosure realtors.

"inqVista" has many features, but its most attractive is that it is easy to setup, easy to change, and easy to use.  These features are important because your data management requirements may change from time to time.  And, with inqVista you do not have to start over and learn new software.

Also, since many individuals have a need for more than one database, using inqVista means that you can keep track of a variety of different needs.  Using inqVista, you can, with a few mouse clicks, create another database or modified the old one.   "inqVista" is designed so you can setup and start another database, on your computer, independent of those that already exist.

Presented below is inqVista's default Master Data Entry Form, ready for you to modify.  This is the first window that you will see for whatever type of database you intend to create.

As you can see in the top light green border of the Master Data Entry Screen, the user has named this database MY_DATA.

You can name yours Clients, Inventory, Employees, Coin Collection, Home Inventory, Student's Grades, or anything else you choose.

Each record has a main note field attached, ready for data entry. You can add notes to any record as needed then use the [Save/Archive] option to continue.

To open a record, simply click on the [Find / Edit] option and pick the record from the menu.

After you create a new database, from the Master Data Entry Screen, choose the [Modify DB] option.  This option opens the Modify Database Form, (below).

You can change, add or delete rows and records, including changing row names whenever you need to update your database.

From the "Modify Database Form" you can:
  • Change Row Names.
  • Add or Delete Rows.
  • Move Rows.
  • Change Row Data Type.
  • Use these features anytime you have a need to make a change.

Options for adding 
    rows, changing and saving row names, changing data type, moving a row, and other available modifications.

The form above is ready to have it's rows named.

The Modify Database Form is where you will customized your database to suite your needs.  The options available for inqVista are the names on the buttons.

Whether the row has a name or not, entering a name into an entry field and choosing the [Save name changes] option, changes the row name.

To the right are the results of simply typing what you see into the Pink Entry Field then choosing the [Save name changes] option.  All other rows are named the same way.

You can choose the [Return] option and use the database as is, if this is all you need.

However, the user continued to modify this database for a more specific purpose.

Below, the user choose the [Add a row] option and added additional "Master" rows to this database.

Three additional Master Rows were added to the two original rows.  The additional rows were named to show some of the possible row names one might find in a customized database.

Also, notice that the Data Type, shown in the Modify Database Form below, has a default type of "Text". Some time in the future you may want to change the Data Type to accommodate your needs.  And with inqVista you can.

The user has some specific needs for each of these rows.

The current plans are to change the Data Type of three of the rows to the Data Types of Image, Date, and Folder.

Changing the Data Types will help the user find existing Images, Folders, and saved data already on the users Hard Drive.  The Data Type of "Date" will also help when sorting inqVista records.

You may have a need to sort your records by date so changing the Data Type to Date will help you do this.

To change a Data Type, simply choose the [Change data type] option found in the Modify Database Form.

The user, by changing the row's data type to Date can control the format that is entered into the Master Data Entry Field named "Entry_Date".  This means that when you sort your records by "Date", all records will appear in the Find Box in the correct order.

Also, you can change the Data Type back to Text or any other available option whenever you care to.

Choosing the [Change data type] Option in the Modify Database Form, (above), opens the gold, Entry Field Row Number form, the one you see on your right. The user will enter a row number, then choose the [Continue] Option.

After the gold, Entry Field Row Number form closes, the Data Type Choice form opens and offers the available Data Types.

This user chose the Date option and opened the window on the far right. That window shows the Date formats that are available.  In this case, the user picked "YY-MMDD".  If someone tried to enter a Date in a format different from the one installed, inqVista will complain.  First, you will see an error message that will explain that the format entered into the entry field is incorrect and next, it will show the correct format.

Choosing this format means that the user will enter many dates into the Master Data Entry Field, and all will look something like this one, 14-0128.  This entry translates into year = 14, month = January, day = 28.  The user chose this format because all records, when sorted by date, are sorted in the Find Box in numerical order.

Looking at the Master Data Entry form, (bottom of this page), you can see the [Sort Order] Option available to the user.

Below, you can see the results after changing the Data Type of rows 2, 3, and 4.

If you want to see the purpose of changing the Data Type of row 4 to Image, check the Stamp Collecting & Image Management Page. The Data Type of Image offers users the option to find and save a path to an image file stored somewhere on their computer, and with a click open that picture. This feature is better explained there.

Here you can see the results of changes to the Data Type.

The user chose the Data Type of Date for one of the entry fields.  Using the data type of Date means that the user can correctly sort saved records by date when necessary.

To accomplish this, the user simply changes the sort order with the [Sort Order] Option.  Then, after choosing the [Find / Edit] Option, inqVista will display the records in chronological order.

This Master Data Entry Form is ready for use.  Ready for use includes using the [Modify DB] option again, and whenever you think using it is necessary.

Here you can see the results of using the [Change data type] option in the Modify Database Form, (above).

For now, the user considers this Master Data Entry Form ready for use.
