    A database index allows a query to efficiently retrieve data from a database. Indexes are related to specific tables and consist of one or more keys. A table can have more than one index built from it. The keys are a fancy term for the values we want to look up in the index. The keys are based on the tables’ columns. I still have my college dBase III lesson book in the closet. I can confirm that it still ran in DOS mode from Windows95 (and probably 98). A reasonably powerful database with scripting capability for DOS PC’s. But I suspect it would have a maximum database size of ~K if used today, making it somewhat useful, even as a leaning tool, today.

    The tutorial option loads an introductory package (Learning dBASE III PLUS) on the system. This uses the Assistant and is an excellent way of demonstrating the concepts. You will need to borrow "Learning dBASE III PLUS" from Computer Reception.
