I have been using a dBase III clone called "VP-Info" since 1986, and I've been running it on a Windows 3.1 computer (that is not Y2K). I want to transfer the data to Access97 but it does not recognize the format (I tried as dBase III format). I tried importing into Access ver2 on the same copmuter without success. I tried calling phone numbers from 1992 for Sub Rosa Publishing (out of Minneapolis MN) but it's not their phone number any longer. I search the internet for "sub rosa" and "vp info" without any luck. This database contains infomation on 50 million negatives of film, so it is important to try and transfer if I can.
Other question: If I'm not able to transfer into an Access format, should I be able to transfer the VP-Info programs to the new computer (in DOS) and still run them. The original VP-Info disks are 5 1/4" floppies and I don't have that type of drive any more--so can I copy the entire VP-Info directory from the old computer and put it on the new?
