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?

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
