Should I UpDate dBase 5.5

Should I UpDate dBase 5.5

Should I UpDate dBase 5.5

Sometime ago I had updated to visual 7.5 and had problems so went back to 5.5. I am now in Windows 7 and very happy. I have not migrated my 5.5 away from XP. When DBS was purchased, I believe from Ashton-Tate, the new company had some price schemes that didn't set well with me.

5.5 works well with me since I use it to run calculations and enter data. I enter I enter all who hold permits in Wisconsin and run the results in publications. If I did upgrade it would be mostly for better documentation and help. Also being able to use Windows 7 would be appealing. Their current pricing is kind of over the place. It goes from $99 to 800+.

Are there any recommendations that someone could make.
