AskSam 7, free-form text database

AskSam is a database for text documents. It can use the traditional database fields (example: First name, 20 characters; Last name 30 characters, etc.), but its unique feature is being able to use a free-form setup. Kind of hard to describe! Best to go to their website (, and look for the “Watch tour” page.

Anyway, Avanquest, the distributor which sells software for all kinds of companies, is offering the current version of AskSam for FREE, just for signing up at new website they are promoting:

Also included in the offer are Smart PC and Radio Tracker Special Edition. Neither of these is exciting. But AskSam is the real deal. This is from a serious software company which has been refining this product for more than two decades. I remember seriously considering buying the program back in the 90s for some work I was doing.


This offer is for the Standard version.

From the website:
“askSam is available in two versions: the Standard version and the Professional version. askSam Professional includes all the features of the Standard version and adds full-text indexing to give you lightning-fast searches. askSam Professional is ideal for large databases – it lets you instantly search through hundreds of megabytes and thousands of documents.”

Thanks Bruce.  Although there are some bugs, AskSam is very nice software that I enjoy using a lot, after using it for a week or so.  Very happy to get it for free!Smile
