Matthews, NC - March 24, 2003 - Advanced Extensions
(www.advancedextensions.com), a division of data integration and
reporting innovator, Decision Support Inc., today announced the release
of Advanced Query WizardT, a robust SQL query-building tool that speeds
and simplifies the creation of dynamic Web pages in Macromedia
DreamweaverR MX. Unlike existing solutions that require knowledge of
SQL, Advanced Query Wizard simplifies Web application development by
enabling designers and developers to insert dynamic data, such as
information on sales, pricing, or availability, via an intuitive
graphical and menu-driven interface. The extension automatically
generates the correct SQL code necessary to perform extracts, joins,
filters, groups, summaries, and other complex selection criteria quickly
with a simple, click-and-drag process.

and time saving ability. Josh Cavalier, president of Interactive Fun!,
LLC, a nationally recognized provider of consulting and training
services to Fortune 100 and Fortune 500 companies said, "Advanced Query
Wizard is a tool that is going to help us empower the clients we train
by enabling them complete their development work more efficiently.
Advanced Query Wizard is also very helpful in our own consulting work. I
just used it to develop a query for the Web site of a national
non-profit organization, and in minutes, I had completed the query
without having to write or verify any SQL code. Advanced Query Wizard is
going to be a very valuable tool to anyone who works with Dreamweaver
Zachariah Crow, Design and Systems Development, BC Centre for
International Education, Victoria, BC, Canada, said, "After installing
Advanced Query Wizard, I created my first complex recordset in about
five minutes. Advanced Query Wizard's interface is really user-friendly,
and drastically shortens the learning curve, making me more productive
and saving substantial time."
Dave Baxter, Engineering Tech at Great Lakes Energy, Boyne City, MI,
said, "Up until now I have had to learn SQL by trial and error, and lots
of late night reading. Without a doubt, Advanced Query Wizard is one of
the best extensions for Dreamweaver MX that I have had the pleasure to
