Abstract

Disclosed is a method for making conditional queries with a card-type user interface on a relational database system. The method provides conventional relational operations (Union, Intersection, Set difference, Cartesian product, Projection, Selection, Join) and a new operation "Navigation" that is a kind of Selection. The user can do these operations by an easy, direct manipulation on the screen, not by inputting command language. Card deck
