Paradox Viewer Description
Paradox Viewer is a compact and portable application that lets you view Paradox tables. It comprises simple options for all types of users, even beginners.
Since there is no setup pack available, you can drop the program files anywhere on the hard drive and run the executable file directly.
Alternatively, you can store Paradox Viewer on a USB flash drive or other storage unit, in order to run it on any workstation effortlessly.
Another important aspect is that the Windows Registry does not get new entries, and files do not remain on the hard drive after deleting the tool.
The interface of the application is made from a standard window with a plain layout, where you can open a Paradox table (DB format) using either the file browser or “drag and drop” method.
Paradox Viewer shows general information for the name and value of each field in the table, such as the version number, file type, record and header size, record and field count, primary keys, sort order, write protection and load time.
In addition, the utility reveals the table structure and data grid. Data can be printed, copied to the Clipboard (cell or whole table), or saved to an external file for further evaluation (e.g. CSV, TXT, HTM, XML, XLS, SQL, MDB, PDF).
Other features of Paradox Viewer let you view statistics, generate a CREATE TABLE statement or SQL dump, use a search function when dealing with large amounts of data, jump to a specific record, filter records, change the code page, and display a folder tree.
More configuration settings can be found in the Options panel, where you can make the tool automatically open the last file on startup, disable the message dialogs after saving or exporting items, use a custom font for the grid, convert the field names, and save the stored password list, among others.
Paradox Viewer is very light on the system resources, has a good response time and offers support for multiple languages. There’s also a help file included, for less experienced users. Thanks its ease of use and wide range of settings, Paradox Viewer should please the entire audience.
