Excel 2016 to edit DBF files for databases.


Fonts: the font selection that will be saved between runs include the font name, the size, and the text color.  It will not save oblique, italics, underline, or other settings.

Under obscure circumstances, the program may try to delete system files in the root directory (c:\).  This is error trapped inside MICRODEM (the files will not be deleted), and you are requested to submit a bug report with a debug log so we can figure out what causes this.  To date, we have not gotten any useful information to track down the issue.  Our best guess is that the problem only occurs when the BDE has not been installed first, and will go away after you get it installed.

MICRODEM  is a work in progress. We would be waiting for the next millenium to get everything perfect and include everything that someone might want.  This program is designed to support my research and as a teaching tool, for GIS, geology, digital terrain data and its uses.
