I just recently downloaded PAF. I am currently using UFT, but it has the same owner as FTM and I am afraid it will be discontinued. Thus I am testing several other programs, hence this post. So far I have found PAF to be an excellent program, but I do have 2 questions:

1- Can you search for data in only 1 "user" event? (ex- All people with a "church membership" in a certain place). So far I can search if the event exists and for the place but not for the event in the given place.

2- I have read that PAF is an "open standard". What database is it in? I have MS Access and Foxpro, can I link to the PAF tables with them?

Thanks in advance,
Bill
