I have a .DBX file that has the size of 250 Mb. This file seems to be accessed from a clipper or dbase program. I want to know how I can access this hypothetical database file without the program executable.
Thanks....

you could use access to import "external" data stored in dbase format...

Staplehead is quite right. A customer of mine had a DBase system where the Indexes (.IDX files) kept getting corrupted; the supplier used to come along and fix them until he disappeared.
I got involved and pointed Access 2 (this was a while ago!) at the file and good grief! it read it and imported it into Access beatifully - I can't remember whether it actuallt imported the column names or I had to work them out (I think it did).
If you haven't got the executable, have they lost it or are you just peeking? :)

Personally I would see if I can download a shareware version of Visual Clipper and locate the DBU utility which allows you to view/create/modify all dbase and clipper indexes etc..

A good place to start, if I had more time I would have found the exact URL . Good Luck..
