Book collector's inventory (books.dwh)for dBworx
Author: helium
This is a simple, if not rudimentary, database that I created for my 
small collection of hardcovers. It was not meant for serious book collectors/
dealers/libraries but can be changed to meet your purposes
or as a guide to creating your own db. contains a readme file and the template.

The template, books.dwh, is a comma delimited file and can be adopted
to any other type of delimited file - tab. etc. It's an ascii file that
can be read or changed using any text editor. The help file, books.txt,
explains the choices made by the author. HTH, lewis
