Hi...

I have some Btrieve files, but no software to access them. So I want to convert them into some popular format, like DBase or a simple Text-File... do anybody know something like that...?

Thanx

Get a copy of the butil utility or send your files over to somebody who is using btrieve and ask them to use the butil utility to dump the btrieve files to text files.  This utility will create fixed length ascii text files for you, which you can use with just about anything, and/or import to Access etc.

I though I remember seeing a Btrieve odbc driver that come with Access. Just go to setup and look for data access. There should be a driver there.

The problem is solved, I have got an old Btrieve-Version, which includes the butil utility.

Sven99- Would you mind e-mailing me the butil file?  I need to convert some Btrieve 3.5 files into text to pull them into Access 97.  My e-mail address is critter017@yahoo.com.
Thanks
