"Can't find what you're looking for? Just ask!"
The title of our article has long been a department store mantra. Now, thanks to ELF Software, you can apply the phrase to your databases. Their product, Access ELF, lets you perform natural language queries against a database. For example, suppose you want to see a list of products you receive from a particular supplier. You can simply type What products are supplied by Bigfoot breweries and click a button, and Access ELF returns the results (all without any teenage store-clerk attitude). --Inside Microsoft Access
"Why can't they make computers understand plain English?"
...In the tests that I did, the answers were quick and correct 99% of the time. I tried their demo questions and a few of my own, and was astounded by the results.
This software is a definite must if you are creating database applications. It allows novice users to create SQL queries that you wouldn't have dreamed about in your worst nightmares! --John Percival, VB-World
"Natural Language Processing Made Easy"
It took less than an hour to create a bunch of select queries and run ELF against those queries by selecting "custom" in the set up. I saved close to 59 developer hours...I got all our queries to work that I thought our users would want. The response time was fast, and ELF even popped up the Access spellchecker when it couldn't understand my bad typing.
Access ELF is a great product. It gives your users the ability to query your databases without having to learn any SQL at all. As a developer, you can customize Access ELF as you see fit... the "maintenance" that I'm required to do to my existing applications usually consists of creating new reports. With Access ELF, that burden is now much less. --Stephen Forte, Access/VB/Office Advisor
