DBDOC's Hyperview browser is a safe, read-only interface to DBDOC's snapshot of your system graphics and configuration. You can search, trace connections, view live data directly on documents, and much more.
Most DBDOC users have no formal training with our software. Here's an overview of the Hyperview learning resources we recommend for new Hyperview users.
DBDOC organises all your INFI 90 documents into a single package to give you fast, easy, read-only access to the information you need to do your job. Using DBDOC's Hyperview browser, you can browse this representation of your system, search, trace connections, and even view live data.
