Can Sidekick 95 cardfile be converted to Excel or other format?

Can Sidekick 95 cardfile be converted to Excel or other format?

Can Sidekick 95 cardfile be converted to Excel or other format?

(OP)
I have used SideKick 95 for the past 15 years on a variety of computes and operating systems. About a week or 10 days ago, SideKick quit working on every one of my computers. I have tried everything to get it to work but have had no luck. Reluctanly, and with sadness, I have decided to put Sidekick 95 to rest.

If there some way of converting a SideKick card file to a format that is readable in Excel or some other program? If someone knows the answer, please post the procedure. The SideKick card file I am using actually dates back to 1980 and has all contact info that I have accumulated over almost 30 years. Although I  have plenty of backups of the file, I cannot seem to access the card file no matter what I do. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hope you stayed with Sidekick. I have strayed into Foxpro and Excel using Sidekick files and I still do this for presentation and Office uses but I have Sidekick98 on XP Vista and 7 and would say it will survive all
