Opening an old database.
Posted on 1998-12-02
I have a database file from a really old database program. The only name I've heard attached to the database program is Q and A. So, I've got this Q/A database file, with an extension of .DTF, and I need to open it to import it's data to Microsoft Access.
When I open the file in a text editor, it is of course all binary coded, but the first line is readable and says:
"Symantec Touchbase Database", if that is of any help. I try to import it now in Access, but it doesn't recogize the database type. Is there some way I can set up a new ODBC for it or something like this?
I'm not very familiar with ODBC, so if I need to use this, I'll need some easy to follow instructions.
Any help you can give will be appreciated.
