Activating Trial Version

DBEdite works as a free version by default.

You can connect to databases and view data from tables, views, and stored procedures.

To test saving changes, you have to activate the trial version.

You can do this during the installation or later, using Help, Register Product.

First Steps

  1. Run DBEdit.
  2. Create a new workbook using File, New, and connect to any table in your database.
  3. Change data in any cell and click the Save button. Type the initial value and save data once again.

Now you know how to connect to tables, views, and stored procedures and save your changes to databases.

Next Steps

You have to be sure that DBEdit has enough features to edit data and to be used as a client application.
