QueryIT is an Opensource SQL (ODBC/ADO) Developer Toolkit & Data Management Tool for Windows build in C#
The main reason to collect money on Kickstarter is that it's not cheap to develop Opensource software for Windows.
There are costs for a lot of things I have never expect.
It starts with code signing certificates and hosting and ends with legal advice or access to test environments to run Queries on Oracle, DB2, DBASE. MS-SQL, MySQL, PostgresQL, MS-Excel or whatever ADO Driver there is.
Connect to any ODBC/ADO database which is supported by your operating system and View Data, run Querys or import/export Data.
The key feature of QueryIT are the Core modules to run commands against the RestultSet of an SQL Query rersult get unique records or show only dublicate records.
If you connect two datasources as Source and Destination it's easy to move or compare recordsets.
You can CrossJoin CSV Files with MySQL Tables...or run querys with placeholders against huge Tables in an ForEach loop driven by an resultset or run bulkupdates in Chunks.
The Open Plugin System gives easy access to the resultsets and the list of possible Plugins is unlimited. For example Import/Export formats, filter, charts, statistics or encryption.
We are now at (126.96.36.199), and list of things to test and improve is endless.
The final goal here is a stable Version 1.2
+ Improve Syntax Highlighting
+ Improve Chart Plugin
+ Improve Query History Log
+ Add more ADO/ODBC Drivers
+ Print Recordsets / Preview
+ Add more Export\Import Plugins
+ Improve the Core Modules
+ Improve the Recordset Tools

Risks and challenges
It takes time and money to develop a stable version from the functional prototypes. This requires certificates and licenses for testing.
It is possible that the product has to be submitted unfinished, then the last development version will be released in its current state.
The Prototype works with MySQL and CSV files at the moment to 95%.
There will definitely be a significant improvement, as the group of users is growing steadily.
Since this is an OpenSource project, the money is spent on this product. Donate surplus will be transferred to another Opensource project, in coordination with all donors.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
