Screenshot 1 0 7137 CQ 

dtSearch end-user products (dtSearch Desktop/Network, Web/Publish) can index 'desktop databases' such as Microsoft Access, *dbf, but cannot index SQL type databases; to do this requires software development using the dtSearch Engine product.

Database Indexer is an add-on product that enables non-developers to index SQL type databases that can be searched with their existing dtSearch Desktop/Network/Web installations.

The application works with local and cloud-based SQL-type databases, including: SQL, MySQL, SQL on Azure, and SQL on AWS. It offers simple selection of tables from drop down lists or custom queries using SQL SELECT Statements.
