Also, users with HandBase 3 Pro can easily change the included forms to suit their needs (no restricted access to forms or fields). Views have been set up alphabetically by film title, by specific genre and by film length with numerous additional views possible.

Filters:Find films suitable for viewing by children. List DVDs currently out on loan. Keep track of rented or borrowed DVD's still to be returned. Make a wish list of those DVD's you would like to either purchase or watch.

Comments:NOT ANOTHER DVD DATABASE! What sets this database apart, however, is the amount of information you're able to collect, the ease of entry, and the design of the forms.
** Updated August 2, 2003 **
