! Custom Addressbook
Small Flexible Simple Password Protected!
Version 3.0.3
! Custom Addressbook received 5 stars (the maximum rating) at The File Transit.
ListSoft writes: absence of unneeded and fancy functions, small size (you can run it, say, from floppy), ability to encrypt and compress data, import features, and a lot of other useful things makes this address book a really handy tool...

Custom Addressbook is an easy to use, small, and extremely flexible Address Management program for Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2000/XP.
Custom Addressbook is unique, among the many apparently similar programs, in that this program enables you to define your own addressbook fields and categories.

Another advantage of its small size, is that the program and its database file can run directly from a floppy disk.
This means, that anywhere you may be, if you can make use of a computer, then you can also access your Custom Addressbook! All you need is to have with you the diskette with the program and the data file. Freeware and shareware versions are available.

    Now, why is this program called 'Custom' Addressbook?

Custom Addressbook is unique, among the many apparently similar programs, in that this program enables you to define your own addressbook. Each person has different needs, wants to store his data in a different order, and wants to store different things (not everyone wants to store birthdays or first names, but some people do!).
Custom Addressbook even enables you to define your own addressbook from scratch!

For instance, you can easily define your own 'attributes' (like 'Phone Number', 'Email Address'). You can also define 'categories' (these are groups into which you can organize your data, e.g. 'Friends', 'Office', 'Family', etc.).
See this screenshot to get an impression on how to define and order attributes yourself.
