VdB 7.x

VdB 5.x

HowTos and Helps

YET another year, YET another Borland conference (Anaheim in May, 2002), another year without seeing most of my old dBASE friends, unfortunately.  Alas, my thirst for a conference for dBASE folk continues unquenched....

For all the latest and greatest dBASE stuff, check out the dBASE Incorporated web site.  The best dBASE support in the world is available through the newsgroups hosted there.

Borland Conference '98

dBASE in Denver! The ICon '98 conference at the Colorado Convention Center was a rousing success for dBASE fans. We had lots of great technical sessions, met old friends and made new friends.
