DBMAN questions
1. I already have a database. It's just a flatfile. Can I import it to DMman?

2. Do I need other scripts to interact with the database?
I want users to be able to:
Search the database with a keyword. But when it searches it can only search on field. like "Software_Company"

I also want a alphbetical listing on the database. Can this be done with DbMan?
