 the latest version.  The technical support group was very helpful
 with my problems with previous versions.

 This is the only control that I am aware of that offers Query by 
 Example.  It is a very impressive and stable tool.  The error handling
 is more robust than the JET engine.  It over 30 databases but I only
 tested a few.  They all worked fine.  I really like the ease of use but
 there are more tools available for the JET engine.

 Commnt: The JET engine is the standard.

 This is the standard.  You need the data access control for many of 
 the third party tools.  It is the engine supplied with Access 1.0.
 The biggest problem that I have is the lack of support for Access
 security.  The phone support is impossible but I like the Fax Back 
 support.

 This grid has a different way of implementing pull downs, which 
 takes a bit of fiddling to get working but it is worth it.  There 
 is a great deal of speed improvement since it only reads in as much
 as required.

 pulled down for in place editting.

 KeyWds: HELP WINWORD
 
 This program creates help files and needs Word for Windows 2.x or 6.x.
 There are benefits to using a program that needs Winword since you can
 import your manual and turn it into your help file.  The program runs on
 top of Word by adding a toolbar and more selections to your pulldown menus.
 The jumps are simulated quite well.  The icons on the new toolbar are
 just the first letter of the command so its good that it has popup help 
 balloons.

 Their support is pitiful.  I have been waiting for my free upgrade for 
 six months and the response is always that it is in the mail.  I could have
 bought an upgrade for the cost of long distance calls but I wouldn't
 be sure that I would get it.

 A very reliable VBX.  It's forte is its proprietary CMP compression but
 it reads and writes most others.  That is most but not all.  Some of the
 newer programs promise more but I can't compare.  The tech support is
 very responsive.

 KeyWds: VBX TIF IMAGE ANNOTATE

 This VBX enables you to add hotspots and stickies to TIFF images.  The demo
 needs more work to demonstrate the features better.  It read the Winfax TIFF
 but not the Coreldraw or Microsoft Chart TIFF.  Unfortunately, the manual was
 only 56 pages and didn't explain what kind of TIFF was required.  It just
 implied that it could read all TIFFs.

 It works quite well.  You run it and it appears in your menu and
 intercepts control keys.  You can print highlighted area, 
 current procedure, current module, and the entire program.  The output
 is pleasant and I just wanted the ability to print a single module.

 If you distribute software based on VB, you probably have a problem
 insuring that your clients have the correct version of all the VBXs and
 DLLs required.  I often have a problem with users deleting files and 
 restoring incorrect versions.  This program is distributed with your 
 application and solves that problem.  It passed all the simple tests
 that I tried.

 This report writer had the most painful method of passing parameters

 The SQL version had the same parameter passing method but it had the 
 advantage of handling multiple detail records in ODBC unlike Crystal.
 It used a user created SQL statement with a union statement.  This 
 wasn't a very nice method to use but it worked.  Unfortunately, it
 didn't allow the use of a Sybase TEXT datatype in the union statement.
 Tech Support claimed that this was due to a bug in Sybase but I didn't
 verify it.  The first three times that I called Tech Support an idiot 
 answered so I had lost patience by then.

 If you like msgblast.vbx, you'll love this tool.  It allows you to
 do some amazing things with VB that you thought would require C++.
 The examples are quite impressive.  The other capabilities like 
 checking to see how much resources are being consumed are very useful.
 Basically, this allows you to do anything that can be done in Windows
 using VB.  This is at the expense of making it much easier to crash
 Windows.
