hi, thanks for your reply!

well there are various things and working with DBMan SQL every minute new things are coming up.

I think a must is an understandable and useable documentation of all functions and tags.

See my new post here:

http://www.gossamer-threads.com/...orum.cgi?post=226211

The provided documentation is very nice but what I wrote in my posting (link above) is missing and as I think extremly neccessary!

My other point is the usability of the admin. To tell all things I am missing or I dont't like would take to much time .

But an example:

In Relationships->Queries->Listings you have your defined queries in a drop down menu showing just the Name you gave them but not the function of the query itself.

I think it would be quite better to have a table of queries instead of a dropdown-menu showing the query-function name and an sql select-tag to have a quick look what the query does.

Another thing is that you can't really work with the User-Tables. I know that this is a thing of how DBMan is designed but as I have some knowledge in programming SQL-applications it is hard for me to give things out of my hand.

For example I wanted to blow up the user-table to add things like address, phone-number,etc. I added this via the table properties-function. But in the form generated by DBMan SQL the added columns are not displayed. I still didn't find out how to manage this.

Also I didn't found out how to search and display data of the user-table.

Another thing is building Relationships. For me things would be much clearer if the user-table would be integrated so that you would be able to (visibly) setup relations like

USER_TABLE(userid_column)=>STORES_TABLE(owner_column)

STORES_TABLE(storeID_column)=>PRODUCTS_TABLE=>(ownedByStore_column)
