Clarion Dos 2.8 .DAT files problem

Clarion Dos 2.8 .DAT files problem

Clarion Dos 2.8 .DAT files problem


I reacently desided to update my database from the old DOS clarion 2.8 to MySql.
I have downloaded the ccvt.exe program which does the work.
The problem is that I ve been asked for an Owner ID which Its not possible to find cause the creator of the Database is dead.
The best program is clarion viewer which, for some reason, can read the tables of my database without
asking me for an Owner ID.
Also there was a programmer years ago who could view my db clarion tables without knowing any IDs or passwors. Unfortunatly  I can not find him either.
Can you suggest me a way of dealing with these tables or find the owners ID ?

A quick Google search came up with :

Clarion to Text converter Download

if you can get it to a flat file, importing into mySql should be pretty simple.
