Yesterday, I had released a minor update of Chem4Data version 2.1.0. These minor changes are as follows:
● Added New Feature: Backup current database with an automated unique name format like “Chem4data(date)-(time).mdb”.
● Added New Feature: Select database (.mdb) file from backup folder.
Those who are not aware about Chem4Data, this is a short introduction:
Chem4Data is a free chemical database software developed in Visual Basic 6 language for Microsoft Windows systems. You can do modifications like add new record, edit existing record, delete record, update record etc without any internet connection, though the database file is stored in Chem4Data Program Folder. You can search chemicals according to 8 different fields. Database navigation is quicker than before by using keyboard arrow keys. Ascending and Descending records are just a click away. You can download Chem4Data latest version from this link:
