vb data to vfp

vb data to vfp

vb data to vfp

Does anyone know of a quick way or program to convert vb
.dat file to vfp or text ?


RE: vb data to vfp

.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?


RE: vb data to vfp

I need to convert from visual basic ver 6. The .dat file was
the largest file i found and i assumed it was the vb database. I guess the .mdb files are still used by vb. They
shouldn't be any problem.  

Thanks for your answer.
