Data File Utility/38 (DFU/38) permits users to establish their own data entry application, optimized for their
use, and unique to their requirements. This is similar to the System/38 Release 8 Interactive Database Utilities
for IBM i DFU function.
Query/38 provides the capability to access (but not change) information in database files. The user first creates
the Query application by responding to a series of menus and prompts. The application may then be executed
to produce the report (printed or displayed) or output to a database file. Query/38 provides compatibility
with the System/38 Release 8 Interactive Database Utilities for the IBM i Query function.
Text Management/38 provides word processing capabilities to migrating System/38 customers with no integrated
IBM i office support. Text Management/38 allows users to create, store, retrieve, revise, check document
spelling, provide synonyms and automatic hyphenation, and print documents. The user can access the database
interactively from the Text Management/38 program at edit time or at print time to include database information
in a text document. In addition, forms can be created and filled in on the display or stored in the system
for later use.
No further enhancements are planned for this product.
