A 25-year-old program like Q&A cannot be 'tweaked,' 'patched' or 'upgraded' to run reliably — if at all — on today's computers.

Your databases will accumulate unseen corruption until they begin to produce errors and eventually freeze. And they might not be recoverable.

Or, you'll buy a new computer only to find that Q&A will not install or run on it at all.

Microsoft support for Windows XP ended April 8, 2014. No more MS security updates.

We strongly advise getting out of Q&A while the getting's good — before catastrophic data loss occurs or you can't access your files.

Nobody knows Q&A and your migration options like we do. We'll perform your migration with care, 100% data integrity, no data re-entry, no down time and no learning issues for you or your people.

Q&A database and document conversions :: Home page


Our company had been using an older database manager (Symantec's Q&A) since the early 90's when we began searching last year for a modern replacement product.
      We initially focused on industry-specific packages. But it was clear that our expansive 12-database Q&A system would require a custom software solution. We did our research and decided that Sesame would be our best choice.
      Evaluating our options for a developer/programmer to assist us with the migration, we decided to work with Tom Marcellus/Marble Publications. Tom was editor and publisher of The Quick Answer Q&A newsletter which we subscribed to for many years, and his company has been publishing the Inside Sesame newsletter for the past 10 years. So there was no question about his expertise with both programs.
      The migration to Sesame performed by Tom was a positive experience for us and he has continued to be responsive to our needs. Our new system is giving us everything we need and we have been able to add to it ourselves as new requirements have come up.
      We would happily and highly recommend Tom's company for any Q&A migration or custom Sesame programming.

I wanted to take a few minutes to thank you for the great job you did in converting our Q&A databases to Microsoft Access. After receiving the new Access database from you, it took me no time at all to start using it.

You, sir, are a genius.
      After spending hours on the internet, posting the issue on an MS Word discussion group and comparing just about everything in the document from one machine to another, it all came down, as you suggested, to Macro Security. I learned something new today — you can teach an old dog like me a new trick.
      I also learned that YOU ARE the go-to guy — you just don't know it.
