Simple Yet Powerful Searching

Readerware Searches, Table View

Searching your local database couldn't be easier. Simply select the type of search, Author, Title, ISBN, Category, etc., and enter your search criteria. The search results are displayed in an easy to read, configurable table view. Just drag columns around, show/hide columns, sort on any column. Create as many table views as you want, each with a different layout. Table cells are links, just like in a browser. Want to refine your search? Click on a field in the table. For example you can easily search for all books by a favorite author, then click on hard cover and then first edition to produce a list of all hardcover first editions by the selected author. Simple yet very powerful search capabilities are built right into Readerware. You don't have to understand complex database languages. Yet behind Readerware there is a powerful, full featured SQL database. This means that Readerware can easily store your full collection, literally thousands of titles are no trouble for Readerware.
