A database text is not a game but a text report, which may contain pictures, videos, positions and links to games, keys, other texts, etc.
It appears like a game in the database list, and can be loaded in the same way.
Database texts can also contain links to video sequences. When you click a video icon the clip is replayed.
ChessBase Magazine usually includes over 30 minutes of video. The database text is created with a special database text editor that is built into the program. To start a new text click New – Text in the database window or press Ctrl-Alt-N.
Sorting database texts
When you sort a database this is how the database texts are handled:
Database texts without tournament data or year are sorted to the top of the database
Database texts which contain data on specific rounds of a tournament (round reports) are sorted to the top of each round of the tournament.
