PC MAGAZINE, October 27, 1987  PC MAGAZINE - EDITOR'S CHOICE - askSAM "All of these programs have something good to offer, but none has it all. AskSAM scores high for its flexibility, its text editor, and its reporting features. It imports ASCII files into a text database format extremely fast and does searches lickety-split. AskSAM supports three types of database fields, and your can create columnar reports from them. the commend language could be easier to use, but it gives you exceptional flexibility."
