If your company uses a database application based on any of such popular systems as Clipper, dBase, FoxPro and their "Visual" clones, you have a lot of files in the DBF format. Your everyday administration tasks probably include backing up your DBF files, synchronizing them between computers or offices, converting them to other formats, publishing on the web and more...
When managing DBF files, you often need to take a quick look at their contents. Starting your database application, and finding the necessary data is not the easiest way to do this. Moreover, from a database application GUI, it is normally not clear what data is contained in each particular DBF file. Administrators usually prefer to use a simple DBF viewer for this purpose.

The built-in dbf editor of DBF Viewer 2000 dynamically builds visual dialogs according to the DBF file structure. These dialogs allow you to edit records naturally as if you were using your database application. There are many advanced editing features including textual fields formatting and automated removal of duplicate records.
