I have an old Pfs:file database that I wishto convert to anything current like Access or even Quattr or Excel. My computer will no longer run the executable file for PFS but I do have the data files. How can I convert? I have tried importing them in a variety of ways without success. AB

I am always interested in these data migration problems.  I recall that in one incarnation, PFS:file maintained databases in .dbf format, which shoud be easy to import.  If this is not your version, can you email me a small pfs:File db, and I'll see if I can develop a program to convert it into a text file for you, which you definitely can import into other systems. Usually, there is a descernable pattern in any DB structure that allows it to be extracted into individual records.

I have several PFS:file data files as well. The file extension is not DB type. Could anyone help me to convert them?
