Can Bento do mail merge with Pages or MS Word?


Arnold Jensen

I have several DBs I developed in AppleWorks. Will Bento inport them without too much hassel?



Personal organizer vs bento, I'd really like to see the differences. from what I see, PO Looks more intuitive. But, that's ONLY from what I see here, and that's showing Bento doing a nice job of tying the address book and ical together. I'm going to buy one, or maybe both.



Is this just for individuals or will you be able to share info with others in your office?



Please compare Bento to iList Data by Lakewood Studios. Does Bento do SQL?


James Rutter

If you've got to ask if Bento does SQL, surely you have missed the point of the products. The majority of its target market won't know or care about SQL.



If i have to make a database of my MP4 Videos database, can it arrange tham too.
