2: Using the Demonstration Subscription System

2.1 Introduction

The C/Base Tutorial uses an application developed for a magazine subscription business to acquaint you with the C/Base software. While working through the material contained in this chapter, you will become familiar with the methods used to query, find, enter, update, and delete data in data entry screens.

The application used in this Tutorial allows the user to keep track of magazines, customers, and subscriptions. In this chapter, you will use data entry screens for entering customer information (name, address, etc.), magazine data (title, subscription cost, etc.), and subscription information (customer code, magazine code, length of subscription, etc.).
