It seems, the program adds tween records when duplicate with F5. :)
And deletes 2 records instead of one, if delete with "Del". :(

Thanks for the report:

Hi. I've updated Snap DB from version 1.4.1 to 1.4.5 and now I have a little problem. I'm using high DPI settings in Windows 7 (125%) and it looks like now Snap DB has some problems with remembering custom columns widths. Everything else works and looks the same as before (add/edit window is a little bigger, maybe too wide).

Hi skwire,

Just a little request: could it be possible to open more then 1 file with the app?

I'm starting to use it for around 6 files and sometimes i would want to have 2 or 3 files opened.

Thank you. :)

Unfortunately, this would be a massive redesign and probably isn't going to happen.  Apologies.

As soon as I get some time I'll be switching to a new computer with Windows 8.1.  My old 16 bit data bases I'm using on XP won't work on the new machine.   Hoping SnapDB works -- Anyone know for sure?

I like it and it is well thought out and does exactly what I need.  It's a snap to import my old data, and for printing I just export to csv & open in excel, and do my printing from there --- real simple and clean.

Yes, it works just fine on either 32 (x86) or 64 (x64) bit versions of Windows.

Thanks Ath, appreciate the info.   
I've successfully been using the "Cards" function of an ancient program called Sidekick since 1990 or thereabouts. It works on everything up to XP, but it's a 16 bit program which just won't run on Win 8. It did everything I needed --- imported, exported, easily configured, searchable, etc.   Now with SnapDB I can pretty near duplicate what I had.  I'm in my mid 80's, and too old to fuss around with a more sophisticated relational data base.

Hi skwire, finding by something to save my notes with an "table structure" I found Snap DB, the program looks good but I think need to be improve a bit.

Snap DB just rename the last column, not selected one.
I can't have more than one note in an same file, Snap DB make a database by file :(

I haven't noticed that, and I make pretty extensive use of it.  Unless I'm misunderstanding you, you're saying that you can't have more than one record in a DB?

This appears to work fine for me.  I can right-click any column header and rename it.

I'm not quite sure what you mean here.  Can you try to explain in more detail?  Or, is it like wraith808 said, and you can't enter more than one record per database file?

Yeah, I want to have more than one record in a database file.

For now all my notes are saved in an ini file.
this is the structure what i'm using for my notes. accounts, passwords, phones, etc
https://s6.postimg.o...elhecx/ini_notes.png

the way in how works Snap DB we need make an file for each thing/category.
I think is better if is possible make a database for accounts, password, phones, and so with just one db file.

Indeed I've send a message to MemPad developer requesting for this (make some option to save notes in tables)
Like this: https://s6.postimg.o...horizontal_list2.png

but ok, then Snap DB what need is some as the Structured Index of notes in MemPad
http://www.horstmuc.de/img/mempade.png the list to the left (Program, Index, Editing, etc)

This appears to work fine for me.  I can right-click any column header and rename it.
haha weird, now works here too, I don't know what happens, but I'm sure I saw that problem :S
well, was my first time using the program, who knows ...  :P

Sorry my english.

So what you're saying is that you can't have multiple categories of notes in the same file, i. e. multiple tables. I'm not sure that SnapDB is the best for this paradigm, as its entire nature is built around  being a simple DB, not a multi table DB.

you can approximate this by having an additional field to entry type, but then they'd also need to be using the same fields.

skwire can comment most effectively on this, however.

@c-sanchez: Thanks for taking the time to give Snap DB a try.  Unfortunately, as wraith808 said, Snap DB probably isn't going to be the application for you.  I have no plans to add a treeview or multiple database handling to Snap DB.

I understand, it's not what Snap DB was designed for, is ok. Anyway thank you very much for your replies @skwire and @wraith808 :D :up:

I'm not sure if it is exactly what you want, but the closest-appearing thing I know of is TreeLine:
Some would call TreeLine an Outliner, others would call it a PIM. Basically, it just stores almost any kind of information. A tree structure makes it easy to keep things organized. And each node in the tree can contain several fields, forming a mini-database. The output format for each node can be defined, and the output can be shown on the screen, printed, or exported to html.

There's also treepad and noteliner.  I use the latter, but all of them have variations on the same features, in my experience. Noteliner is abandonware at this point, but it works for me, so I haven't changed.

And thanks for the bit about treeline... I hadn't heard of that.

I dabbled with a very old version, years ago, and suggested it here because it seems to have the fields that @c-sanchez wanted (see the screenshots).  It's a strange beast, hard to uninstall without using something like Revo, but it's multi-platform and now apparently portable.
