- Main View
- The primary view is that of a list of records, one per line, similar to a spreadsheet view.
The list can be scrolled both horizontally and vertically if there are more records / fields than will fit on the screen.
A cursor bar indicates the current record.
- Record View
- Allows viewing and editing of an existing or new record. Data is viewed in a scrolling list, one field per line.
- Restricting records
- The records shown in the main view can be limited by either a key range on the currently selected index or by a free form
- Calculate Totals
- The totals for all numeric fields, including calculated fields, can be calculated based on the current record restrictions with a single keystroke.
- Import and Export of records
- Records can be imported from or exported to either a comma separated values file (CSV) or the raw format used by the BUTIL utility's save function.
- Modify all records
- One or more fields in all records meeting the current record restrictions can be modified to either a constant value or
to a value calculated from fields in the same record.
- Deleting records
- The current record or all records meeting the current record restrictions can be deleted.
- Join to other files
- Join to other files can be created allowing data in related files to be displayed, exported, totaled, used in calculations or in record filters.
- Save / Load view
- The current set of options (restrictions, calculated fields, field customization) can be saved for later re-use.
- Expression evaluator
- The built in expression evaluator is used for calculated fields, record restrictions and the Modify all function. It supports
- Field names represent the value of that field in the current record
- Arithmetic operators: + - * / % ( )
- Relational/Equality operators: = != < > <= >=
- Logical operators: & (AND), | (OR), ! (NOT)
- Multiple data types: Integer, Floating point, Boolean, Date, Time

- Create / Drop Indexes
- Custom indexes can be added for specialized sorting or for optimizing restrictions. Any index can be removed.
- Supports OS/2, Win32 and DOS. Use whichever version corresponds to your Btrieve record manager.
