IBM Personal Decision Series Data Edition 1.00
IBM Data is a high-end flat-file database management system targeted at large corporate users. It is part of the Personal Decision Series family, and reportedly a required prerequisite for other modules or "editions". The IBM Personal Decision Series is notable as being the first integrated office suite for the IBM PC designed and written entirely by IBM. It was intended to compete against integrated office suites such as Lotus Symphony and Framework. It also competed against IBM's own lower-end "Assistant Series". Other members in the Personal Decision Series include: Plans + Edition, Plans Edition, Word Edition, Reports+ Edition, and Graphs Edition. Note: Installation looks for BASICA. For non IBM equipment, I recommend the version included with Compaq's MS-DOS 3.x. Archive contains three 360K floppy disk images.

IBM Personal Decision Series Reports+ Edition 1.00
Reports+ is a program generator that lets you design your own reports and screens, and enables you to design applications that can be run under the Personal Decision Series Data program. Reports+ provides these key features and functions: - A report design aid that lets you design the report as you would like to see it printed. - Control over report elements, such as layout, print styles, inserted date and page numbers, title, and column headings. - Ability to print up to 200 fields per report. - Support for multiple print styles in one report. - Support for printing in monochrome or color. - A screen design aid that lets you custom design screens for inquiry or data entry-up to ten screens per program. - Support for multiple file types and data formats. - Ability to combine information from up to six Personal Decision Series Data files into one program. - An application development facility that lets you perform calculations, select records and fields, and incorporate all the functions of a general-purpose programming language. - An interface to the BASIC code in your program. - Help information for quick reference. - Standardized function keys. Archive includes two 360k 5.25" floppy disk images. Requires 256K ram, DOS 2.0 or higher, and IBM Personal Decision Series Data Edition
