ALDUS SHIPS PAGEMAKER DATABASE EDITION

 ALDUS SHIPS PAGEMAKER DATABASE EDITION
 SEATTLE, Dec. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Aldus Corp. (NASDAQ: ALDC) today


announced shipment of Aldus PageMaker(R) Database Edition, which links PageMaker 4.0 for Windows to database management systems via PageAhead(TM), a spreadsheet-like interface developed by PageAhead Software Corp. of Seattle.
 By combining PageAhead with PageMaker, Database Edition enables customers to easily query, retrieve and format data from database files, then place it in publications they produce with PageMaker.
 "With PageMaker Database Edition, people can bring raw data from dBASE and ASCII files into PageMaker and present the information in a professional-looking piece," said Leslie Magid, Aldus product line manager. "The next release will extend that publishing power by supporting data from Microsoft Excel, SQL Server, Oracle RDBMS and Paradox."
 PageMaker Database Edition offers an intuitive spreadsheet-like interface along with PageMaker's standard pasteboard interface. Users can combine data from multiple database tables, calculate new fields based on any data in a database, and sort the data in practically any order.
 PageMaker Database Edition is the second Aldus product to be shipped in the past two months, joining Aldus(R) PhotoStyler(TM) 1.1. Three more products, Aldus FreeHand(R) 3.1 for the Macintosh, Aldus FreeHand 3.0 for Windows and Aldus PageMaker 4.2 for the Macintosh, are slated for shipment by the year end.

The recommended configuration is a 386-based DOS-compatible computer, 4MB of RAM, and 80MB hard disk, a high-resolution graphics adapter card and a mouse.
