BTRIEVE 5.0

BTRIEVE 5.0

BTRIEVE 5.0

(OP)
I've been doing a data conversions from btrieve
files and would like to know how dates are stored
in a btrieve 5 data file.

RE: BTRIEVE 5.0

I agree. However, I would also like to know 'storage infor' for 2, 3, and 4. (Needless to say, there is a problem.)

RE: BTRIEVE 5.0

i'm trying to convert btrieve data to ascii text, what tools are you using for your conveersion ???

RE: BTRIEVE 5.0

You can try Btsearch from Nelson Software Solutions. You ca download this softaware from www.nss.addr.com , the simpler version costs $49.00 and is quite enough to recognize the btrieve version , read and/or create DDF files , browse a btrieve database and convert it to ASCII or Dbase format.
Hope this helps

RE: BTRIEVE 5.0

To convert btrieve data to ascii, use btrieve /p:3072 followed by the cmd butil -save <btrieve file> output file>.  This presumes u have btrieve.exe & butil.exe files.  In case u dont have either, download btfiler available onthe net which will do the work for u. No need for DDF files
