Legacy Database


End-of-Life Announcement

The Approved Workman Legacy Database has reached End-of-Life, and will no longer be sold after June 1, 2023. Current Legacy Database customers will be supported until June 30, 2024. Licensed Legacy databases do not expire and may continue to be used; but support and updates will no longer be provided after June 30, 2024. We would like existing Legacy Database customers to consider upgrading to the Cloud Database.

As an incentive, customers can upgrade to a Cloud Database Tier 1 subscription for the same price as their Legacy Database support renewal: $140. Future subscription renewals would then continue at the regular price of $240. If you would like to take advantage of this offer, please contact us at support@approvedworkman.com to request the free upgrade to the Cloud Database.

Thank you for being an Approved Workman customer and I look forward to working with you in the future,

Eric Berry, owner Approved Workman LLC



The AWdb Forum is a great resource for answers to frequently asked questions and is the place to submit feature requests and bug reports. You'll be able to watch training videos, ask questions and share information with a community of other AWdb users.

User Guide

You can view the AWdb User Guide in two different ways:

  • The PDF version of the User Guide is suitable for printing, but is over 300 pages so you may want to read it on-screen and only print select pages as needed. One advantage of reading on-screen is that you can use the hyperlinks within the document. If you want to download and save a copy of the PDF version, right-click the link above and select "Save target as.." and then select the folder where you want to save the file. (We recommend you put this in your Approved Workman folder.) Once you have this AWdbUserGuide.pdf file in your local Approved Workman folder, you can open it from AWdb's Main Help menu.

  • The online/HTML version has the familiar left pane navigation tool which makes it easy to expand and collapse topics and get the big-picture view of the document. You can also use the hyperlinks to jump from one topic to another quickly.
