Hello MapInfo Professional Users 
Tom We have a great issue lined up for you this month. Over the past couple of years Peter Hørsboll Møller has worked on a MapBasic utility called the Window Helper. It is available for download from our Web site and this month Peter has written a brief article to introduce this to you all.

We are also introducing a regular new feature called "Be the Query Ninja". In this we will help you to build your SQL querying skills.

In the previous two issues we have started covering the SQL querying capabilities in MapInfo Professional. We will now make this a regular feature in the journal. To that end it needs a good title and the idea for this comes from our colleagues in Australia.

This month we will be joining tables. Read on here.
