The modeling wizard

Business Application Modeling for Genero Report Writer applications is based on a wizard that creates a data model of the business record.

Meta-Schema Manager

The wizard needs a database meta-schema (.4db) in the project to start the wizard. The database meta-schema file is created and maintained by the Meta-schema manager.
