Many of the version databases contain books of the Apocrypha.  Please note the following in relation to this, however.

1. Some databases may contain some books of the Apocrypha, but not all.
2. Arrangement of the books may differ as well, that is, in some cases the books are mixed with the Old Testament books, and in others they are grouped at the end of the database, after the book of Revelation.

To access any of these books it is best to set a version database that contains them as the Search Version.  They can then be accessed by entering a reference abbreviation in the Command Line, or by use of the Browse Window Listboxes.  If a search has produced one or more hits from any of the books of the Apocrypha, then clicking on a hit will also serve to display that text in the Browse Window.

Needless to say, not all version databases contain books of the Apocrypha, but those that do are as follows.  (This list is drawn from BibleWorks 8.)

English - Douay-Rheims American Version (DRA), King James Apocrypha (KJA), Brenton LXX with Apocrypha (LXA), New American Bible (NAB), New Jerusalem Bible (NJB), New Revised Standard Version    (NRS), Revised Standard Version (RSV)
Greek - Rahlf's Septuagint (LXT & BGT)
Latin - Nova Vulgata (NOV), Vulgate Latin Bible (VUL)

Numerous foreign language Bibles also contain books of the Apocrypha.  (Versions below are shown with their three letter abbreviations.)

Catalan (BCI), Croatian (CRO), Dutch (W78 & W95), French (BFC, FBJ & TOB), German (HRD & LUT), Italian (IEB), Polish (BTP), Russian (RSO), and Spanish (BNP, CAB & PER)
