Use the Desktop panel to fulfill any of common tasks: Create a new database, Manage existing database(s), and several tasks that do not require database registration, i.e. Execute SQL script, accessing the reference system or using available Internet resources.


The main menu allows you to perform various Database operations, open To-Do List and activate/deactivate Database Explorer, SQL Assistant and various toolbars within the View menu, manage your databases using items of the Tools and Services menus, use SQL Manager Plugins, customize the application using the Options menu, manage SQL Manager Windows using Window List and other tools, view the Tip of the Day and access Registration information and product documentation, update the product to the latest version using the corresponding items available within the Help menu.


To start working with your InterBase/Firebird server, you should first register the host using Register Host wizard. After that you need to register one or several databases using Register Database Wizard.


By default the corresponding btnRegisterHost Register Host, btnRegisterDB Register Database buttons are available on the toolbar and within the Database menu.
