Open Access had components for a desktop database , programming, spreadsheet , word processing , communication, auxiliary programs and, from version 4, an e-mail client. The package was scriptable via its own QBasic dialect called PRO (see list of BASIC dialects ).
The software can run under MS-DOS as well as under Windows 95 to Windows 10 in the 32-bit versions of the operating system in the "DOS window" as a single-user version or in the network ( Novell or Windows server).
In 1992, SPI launched a product that ran under Windows 3.11 under the name "window base 2.0 (2.02)", which allowed full access to and programming of the SPI Open Access data tables. The object-oriented programming in WYSIWYG mode and the product-specific DASL scripting language as well as an xBase driver made it possible to develop very flexible applications for other data formats.
