The Q&A Database Place

for Q&A compatible software

Supporting the Symantec Q&A database user community for 25 years

We are Q&A conversion/migration specialists

Like thousands of companies the world over, we got hooked on Q&A with our first data management system back in the late 80's.

Ten years later Symantec announced that it would no longer sell or support the most popular database manager of the DOS era.

That's when we did our first Q&A migration.

Since then we've migrated hundreds of companies out of their aging Q&A systems.

Q&A was an exceptional product. We wrote a best-selling 900-page book on it, published a monthly Q&A newsletter for 12 years, and started many companies on their first computerized data management system.

But a 16-bit DOS-era program like Q&A cannot be tweaked or patched to run reliably on today's 32- & 64-bit computers and networks. Only extreme measures can keep it working in an artificially "safe" 90's-like environment.

Microsoft no longer supports Windows XP
No more Microsoft security updates

It isn't a question of whether a Q&A system will break down, but when.

Why risk your vital information when you can safely migrate out of Q&A on your own terms.

Nobody knows Q&A and your migration options like we do. We'll perform your conversion with expert care and guarantee 100% retention of data, design, programming, reports, printing and merges with no down time or learning issues for you or your people.

Choose your migration company carefully
