vb data to vfp vb data to vfp mallee (Programmer) (OP) 18 Oct 01 12:53 Does anyone know of a quick way or program to convert vb.dat file to vfp or text ?TIA RE: vb data to vfp rgbean (Programmer) 18 Oct 01 13:22 .DAT is not a standard data type, and VB has no standard data files. According to http://www.wotsit.org/search.asp .DAT files are either "MapInfo native data format" or "DataFlex 2.3b .DAT format".Can you provide the actual structure of these files? Are they possibly CSV (Comma Separated) files, or SDF (System Data Format) files?Rick RE: vb data to vfp mallee (Programmer) (OP) 18 Oct 01 13:58 I need to convert from visual basic ver 6. The .dat file wasthe largest file i found and i assumed it was the vb database. I guess the .mdb files are still used by vb. Theyshouldn't be any problem. Thanks for your answer.
