The power of inqVista:

Create a database that suits your needs; Create a database that is easy to setup; Create a database that is easy to use.



Choosing the [Modify DB] option while in the Master Data Entry Form shown on inqVista's Home Page, opens the Modify Database Form (below).

Opening the Modify Database Form for each database that you design is necessary because each row in the Master Entry Form must have a name.

Because inqVista allow you to create and install many databases on your computer, you decide what to name each row in each database.  The Modify Database Form is the form that you will use to create or change row names, add and delete rows, rotate and change the Data Type of each row.  Continue on and see what these data modification are, and how to use them to create your Project Management Database.


From the Modify Database Form you can:
  • Add or Delete rows.
  • Name or Re-Name Rows.
  • Change Data Type.
  • Move Rows.
  • You can use these features anytime you have a need to make a change, even after using inqVista for long periods of time.
Options,
     bloank modify form showing how to add chang move, save, row names. Also, how to chang master entry row data type, and the other
     modifications available.


The Modify Database Form, (above) is the place where you will start to produce a customized database.

Below is the results of simply entering a name in an entry field then using the [Save name changes] option.

For this project, these rows were named by the user to reflect perceived needs based on past experience:
  • The first row and last row were named as you see here.
  • The user named these rows knowing that coming back and changing the row names at sometime in the future is possible.
With what you see here, you could choose to return to the Master Data Entry Form and continue.  However this user knows what is required so the user continues to add rows.

     showing two default un-named rows with new user defined names.


From here, this user chose to continue to add and name rows.

Below, the [Add a row] option does just that, it adds a blank row and waits for you to give it a name.

You could use inqVista with just the two default rows. But here more rows were added by the user because of previous experience with this type of project.

In the future, the user may decide to change some of the row names or delete them completely.

This window shows that all rows are named and the Data Type of some of the rows are changed.

It is not necessary to complete this form when first starting or, to make any other changes at this time.  However, as with the options that are represented by the buttons, the user knows it is a simple matter to return to this Modify Database Form and make changes when necessary.

After saving the changes, the user chose the [Return] option which closes the Modify Database Form, (above), and opened the Master Data Entry Form (below).

After making changes in the Modify Database Form, your new Master Data Entry Form may look something like what you see below.

This database is now ready for data entry.

Here you will enter data into the Pink and Green fields and some or all of the other fields, then choose the [Save/Archive] option.

Once you have a saved record, you can select one by using the [Find / Edit] option.

After selecting a record you can use the light green [Div] option, found to the left of every entry field.

The beauty of inqVista is that all available buttons can be your mechanism for learning about the program.

For example, if you tried to save the window that you see on your right, a message box would open and let you know how to proceed.  The reason for the message window is because you cannot save a record that does not have data in both the Pink and the Green fields.
Data Entry
     Screen after adding rows the user thought were necessary, the database is ready for data entry.


This Master Data Entry Form, (below), has sufficient data in the entry fields so the user can save it.

This image shows the data that was enter into the Pink and Green fields which is all that is required to create a record.  In this example the user chose to add notes.

Once this record is saved, you can load it again by using the [Find / Edit] option. 

After selecting a record using the [Find Edit] option, then all of the light green [Div] options, found to the left of every entry field, become available.

Choosing any of the [Div] options opens an additional form, shown (below).
Master Data
     Entry Screen after adding and nameing rows for the management of this project


After loading the record (above), the user can choose any [Div] option located to the left of every Master Data Entry Field.  Choosing the [Div] option opened the Division Records Entry Form, (below).

The user chose the light green [Div] option for Master Data Entry Field No. 1.  This choice opened the un-modified Division Record Form shown on the right.

The Division Form is also subject to customization.

The options available for this form are as you can see.  You may also notice that each row has a default date entered at the end of the row.

This date is one option used for searching division records and the user can modify the date, if necessary.
Blank
     sub-division record for master row one. Called by div option left of master entry field.


Below, within a few minutes, the user added a some rows and named them.  The user also added information based on what was available for this record.

While in this Division Record Form, the user divided a Master Row into three additional rows and named the rows as you see here.  To do this, the user employed two options.  First, the [Add a Row] option, then the [Change Row Name] option.

If the information originally entered is not adequate or complete, then at any time the user can make changes.

The options to make changes are represented by the buttons and are always available from this form.

To change Previously Saved Data, the user simply overwrites the old entry with new information and saves it.

Also, as mentioned before, you can see, to the right of each entry field, there is a changeable entry date.  These dates are used by a search feature found by choosing the [Reports] option, located in the Master Data Entry Form. 

Last, every Division Record Form has a note field attached and ready for entries.  It is also used by the Data Type, "Computed".  isit the [Reports] Option on this website, to see how this note box helps to print receipts.
Sub-division
     of a master row. Image shows a master row devided into additional rows.


From the Division Record Form, (above), using the [Close] option will return you to the Master Data Entry Form (below).

After returning from the Division Record Form you could choose the [Find / Edit] option.  Choosing [Find / Edit] opens a Scrollable Window that contains a list of all of your saved records.

Selecting the record that we have been working with, would load the Master Data Entry Form with the saved record information.

As you can see, inqVista changed the color and the name of the original [Div] button. The default [Div] button was light green and named [Div], and now the button is pink and named [Data].  This change lets you know that this row's Division Record contains data.

At this time the entry, none, is used as the default entry for fields that have not been changed. The user changed the Data Type of a few fields to Image and Folder.  These choices were made because there is the intention to attach pictures and link folders from the user's Hard Drive to those entry fields.

Choosing the [Div] option from either of those rows will open both a Division Entry Form and an Image File or a Division Form and a Scrollable Window.

For this project, using the Data Type of Folder to open a Folder on the computer's Hard Drive is necessary because there are PDF drawings and other items that relate to this order.  Also, there are other files that were used for previous orders that relate to this order.

For example, there are drawings of the truck logo, the color scheme, and the lettering.  These items must be made available to the individuals involved in the building, assembly, painting and completion of those and other aspects of the product.

inqVista makes this information available to those that need it with just a few mouse clicks..

Using the Folder option in inqVista requires choosing the [Get_Icon] option from the Master Data Entry Form.  More information about the [Get_Icon] option is explained below.

"inqVista" IS THE MOST SECURE DATABASE:

     explaining that the records from the division database cannot be removed or copied.



Below, the project manager chose to open a Division Record by choosing the [Div] button found on row 3 in the Master Data Entry Form, (above). 

The project manager knows that the specifications for this order are available and since some of them will relate to other trucks, posting them now makes it easier for others to get started on their responsibilities.

While in this Division Record Form, the user added rows and data as you can see here. 

After the project manager creates or finds a folder containing relative PDF, text, image files including other programs that relate to this order, the user is ready to use the [Get_Icon] option.

The [Get_Icon] option, located in the Master Data Entry Form, can relate any file, in any folder, found on the users computer, to this record, (#1 of 19), and to this order.

That folder may be used as a jump point, to relate other trucks or orders, and even other databases if the user chooses to use it that way.

The next page, shows what the Master Data Entry Form would look like after returning to it by choosing the [Close] option.  From there, the user will choose the [Get_Icon] option to set up and link data from the computer's Hard Drive to this Division Record.
Data Entry
     Screen after adding rows showing original entry used to subdivide the first row. Also shows additional rows added, named and data
     entered into to the Division Form.


Below, the project manager returned to the Master Data Entry Form.

To continue with this project example, the user will choose the [Get_Icon] option to link existing data located somewhere on the users Hard Drive to this Division Record.

From this Master Data Entry Form, the user chose the [Get_Icon] option.  That option opened a window that helped the user pick a Folder from the computer's Hard Drive.

The user picked a Folder that contained text files, image files links to other software, and other folders, some of which relate to this record.

Making that choice let inqVista's [Get_Icon] option automatically set the path to the chosen Folder, just as you see in row 3.

Below, you can see the results of choosing the pink [DATA] option on row 3.  This was a light green [DIV] button until data was added to the division form, shown in the previous window.
Master Data
      Entry Screen after adding rows showing original Master Data Entry Form with [Div] button name changed to data and color changed to
      pink


To get the results shown below, first, you would simply clear row 3 (above).  Next, you would choose the [Div], or in this case the pink [Data] option and follow the search instructions.  Last, let inqVista automatically load a path into the Master Entry Field.

Below, you can see the results of choosing the [DATA] option, adjacent to row 3, which has a Data Type of Folder.

The window, on your right, is the results of your ability to following the instructions for using the Data Type of Folder.  The instructions, for using the Data Type of Folder are opened when choosing the [Get_Icon] option from the Master Data Entry Form.  Following those instructions you can create a similar window whereby you can open a Link, a File, a Folder, or a Computer Program, with a few mouse clicks.

As you can see, that this opened Folder named "Pemex_Specs" has a total of 25 Files, Folders, Links and Programs directly or indirectly attached to it. 

Choosing a numbered row from this window will open the choice.  Using this feature, you can use or create a specific Folder as a main depot.  This main depot Folder can contain important information located somewhere on your computer that directly relates to a specific inqVista record.

In most cases, programs such as Accounting, Spreadsheets, Word Processors, Image Modifying, and other programs will open from this window.  This means, that while you are using inqVista to manage your project you can get information that you may need and acquire it without closing inqVista.
After following
     instructions the user opens a folder that contains an icon put there by the project manager. That folder contains the files and
     folders that relate to this project


Below, what you see could be a page from a parts or repair manual; a page that the program manager scanned into the computer.  This image, Assembly-2353.png, was opened from inqVista's Folder View Window, (above).

This image, Assembly-2353.png, was opened by clicking on the item highlighted in inqVista's, Folder View Window, shown above.

This item could be a page from the Firetruck's repair or parts manual.  This image was scanned into the user's computer and saved to a Folder named Specks.

If this File already existed somewhere else on the user's computer, then, the project manager could easily copy it to this Folder or create a shortcut, (link) to it.

Any person with permission to access the Fire Truck Database, can open this image with a few key strokes, or mouse clicks.
After
     following instructions the user opens a folder found on the users computer. That folder contains this file showing a png file and
     other files and folders that the project manager copied or linked to this directory. These files and folders are there because of
     their importants to this project and also the need of the users of this Project to have access to them.

     computer.
