Using DBase III With ODBC
Posted on 1998-03-23
I've got a number of DBase III (*.dbf) files i wish to use for my net page.
I've previously used MS Access which worked 150% perfectly.
My problem is this.
I've got the following files -> stock.dbf, orders.dbf and clients.dbf. I also have the following
indexes -> artist.ntx + title.ntx + stock.ntx, cliord.ntx, clients.ntx (for the above order).
My problem. Notice the indexes are nTx and not nDx. With the ODBC, it only allows nDx indexes
with the DBase III Files. I've tried using them and it doesn't work.
The only work around i've found is that i need to import the 3 dbf files, then export them out.
This solution is unaccetable becuase this process will need to be done everyday at 6:00pm by
someone working at their company, and they are (basically) computer illiterate.
So. Anyone know a solution to get my Dbase III *.dbf files and their indexes to work with ODBC?
Is there some 'converter' to convert *.nTx to *.nDx ?? Is the meaning of Life = 22?
Thank you kindly
