String manipulation using Visual Basic for Localization and other needs. No Prerequisite needed - beside a PC and Notepad. The goals of my tools are to offer effective technical designs to give friendly alternative solutions to daily computer related tasks, and to reduce the footprint of the utilities to its smallest size possible.

DSCAN User Database Manager

Commands

Description

DSCAN-UDM DSCAN-User Database Manager utility will allow you to manage all your Project/User Databases as a single entity, to create glossaries, to extract entries, to maintain UDB integrity between projects, and much more... Those plain-text databases can then be used to maintain customers' addresses, to translate plain-text, MSI Tables, and/or HTML files, or any other information you want to manage and access rapidly.
New DB Allows to create a new ASCII database. It also inserts a new default record indicating the UDB creation date, extension and location. Create your own plain-text Project/User Databases in any languages of your choice (English/French, German/Italian , English/German and so on...). You can create as many User Databases as you need. DSCAN-UDM allows you to search, sort, modify, or delete your own entries in your own translation databases. The 3 field format allows more than 2 languages per UDB (English/French/Italian, or, English/French/Information, or ...).
Integrity Check Allows to check if all the User Databases have the 3 required fields for each record. UDM will scan all UDBs and check every record. A message box will display a report for any missing delimiters or fields, or empty records.
Force Integrity Allows to force the 3 necessary fields for each record in all your databases. Placeholders are inserted when a missing field is encountered. You can then modify these placeholders globally.
Search Allows to search and display all records that match the input parameters for the selected UDB. The output is written in a file and can be viewed with Notepad.
Add Record Allows to insert new records into any selected UDB.
Modify Record Allows to Modify records from the selected UDB.
Delete Record Allows to delete record(s) from the selected User Database.
Make Glossary Allows to create a glossary from the selected User Database. This glossary will place each field of each record on a separate line with a separator between records.
Substitution Allows to do a Non-Recursive Substitution on the selected User Database. Substitutes only the first instance of the specified string in each record that includes it. This provides users with greater flexibility when modifying the UDB(s). Only the first instance of the string will be replaced each time it is found in a record. If you want to substitute ALL the strings in a UDB, select the Replace command.
Convert Allows to import/export the selected file with delimiters (separators) and creates an output file with the newly indicated delimiter type. This command is used to change all the delimiters in a file from one type to another.
Inverse Allows to invert the fields of the selected User Database and creates an output file. This function can be very useful when sorting UDBs. A UDB can be sorted by the First, Second, or Third Field, depending on which field the records begin with. Very powerful option in particular instances.
Global UDB Query Allows to search and display all records that match the input parameters in all UDBs. The output is written in a file and can be viewed with Notepad.
Global Substitution Allows to do a Non-Recursive Substitution on all User Database. Substitutes only the first instance of the specified string in each record that includes it. This provides users with greater flexibility when modifying the UDB(s). Only the first instance of the string will be replaced each time it is found in a record. If you want to substitute ALL the strings in All UDBs, select the Replace command.
Global Auto-Search Allows to do a Global Auto-Search on User Databases using a list of terms for which you want to retrieve UDB records. Each word, sentence or string should stand alone on one line. This process automatically finds one or more records for every item of a previously created list and will output the strings from the list as well as the translations found in the User Databases.
Seek Allows to do a search for particular records that have more than one string in common. Users may enter a maximum of 4 strings (in desired order) to search, and UDM will list all records containing the four indicated strings. This is a very powerful feature, which can be used to create databases from records associated to specific parameters. The order in which the strings are entered depends on the accuracy of the database information.
