New Microstation user

Good afternoon.  I am a new Microstation user.  I come from a CAD, and GIS background.  Can Microstation view attribute tables (.dbf files) from GIS ?  I am finding Microstation is only 50% of what I need.  I.e., Its' more of a design only software, not as much of a mapping software.  But if I could view .dbf files like you can in GIS it would be very handy.  Anyone have experience with this ?  Thank you.
