  1. dealio - I figured out what each MS Access table did based on looking at the data. "Assets" is the main table, with most of the others just lookup tables ("Customers", "Dealers", "Categories"). You do have to understand relational databases if you want to do any significant data changes that might affect association of tables or write your own SQLqueries. I have decades of experience, so that is no problem for me. I also make backup copies of the database in case I screw up. I am writing my application in C# with a stand-alone version of Microsoft SQL Server. I am using Visual Studio 201
  2. I decided to write my own inventory program and import just the information I need from Home Manage. Home Manage is the hack of a program originally written for stamp and coin collectors. It is too bloated with fields I don't care about. Menu organization is rather odd.

I have a dozen work-arounds in my workflow for bugs in the Home Manage software and I would like to stop using the work-arounds if there is no longer a need for them. I also want to know what was changed because maybe there is something new I can take advantage of. I have yet to ever see a 'change log' with Home Manage updates, which is very bothersome to me.
  4. If I check for an update from within the software, will I be able to see the documentation prior to the actual install so I can decide if I really want to do the install right away or wait a day or two?
  5. How can I tell what was changed between any version of HomeManage, such as between and I want to know before I upgrade to a newer version. That way I can look out for issues in those areas, or start using a new feature, or stop using a work-around because a problem has been fixed. I would hate to upgrade and not know what was changed and suddenly my inventory is corrupt and I've lost days of work.
