Convert dbase4 .dbt file to Access97

I am replacing a dbase4 program with a VB5/Access97 program. Converting the dbase .dbf files presents no problem using Excel as a bridge. However, the dbase4 program contains one variable-length .dbt file which is accessed through an .ntx index. I am having trouble converting this file since I cannot decipher the index.
Can you assist?

Isn't a dbase4 .dbt file just a memo file associated with a .dbf table file? If so, shouldn't you be able to import the dbf directly into access and get the memo records at the same time?

This question was awarded, but never cleared due to the JSP-500 errors of that time.  It was "stuck" against userID -1 versus the intended expert whom you awarded.  This corrects the problem and the expert will now receive these points; points verified.
