    Actually, MS-Works for DOS includes a calender app as well, and the database application was dbase compatible.

    You might want to look into that, and see if there's anything you can leverage.

    TurboPascal had a dbase component that you might use to write your own interface as I recall.

    I have MS-Works 2.0 for DOS, nothing I have can open it's database files.
    I also have an old copy of dBase IV, from Ashton Tate. The interface I don't understand, but the files can be opened by LibreOffice.
    I have Professional Write 2.01 - I can open it's documents as Word Perfect Files.
    ProQube Lite - ??? I don't know of anything that can open these.
    Arachne might support EMS.

    By the way - the only person I know of that can still program for computers like the Tandy, is the 8-bit Guy.

    Do you mean know personally? Because I'm sure there are plenty of people who lurk around these forums alone who could probably slap together a simple CalDev client for DOS over a weekend or two if they were properly motivated. But unless you have some cash to flash at them "motivation" would probably involve them wanting to use it themselves.

    There's a huge difference between "can" and "will" and "has resources to".

    I'd love to. But I can just barely find time to do the things I already do.
