thanks for your reply and my apologizes for this late answering (I was a few days off with limited internet access).
I'm sorry I was not clear in my question, however I can confirm what I was looking for ... is actually available thanks to the READON command.
My fault for not having carefully read the full documentation. Excuse me again.
I'm really impressed about JOODB; I was able to make some very interesting improvements to my site.
Thanks for that!
I'm evaluating now to buy the PRO version (mainly for the Excel import and the prev/next option), but before proceeding with the purchase order I've a doubt: as far as I understood the license is for one domain only; that's ok in my case by the way I'm wondering if I can use the PRO version in my offline development environment based on XAMMP on MAC.
