A client of mine has asked me to take files off an old 3.1 system.  She is using the Card File program.  Is there a way of converting the Card File file to something that could be read by say wworks or Access?

Your help would be appreciated

I couldn't find one.  However, if you're using Win 98 or ME now, cardfile.exe is included on the cdrom.  You can install it and continue to use it.  See

Mike,

Here are a few items and tools to convert or import the Cardfile (.crd) format
to other applications. A couple of these create delimited text files
which could then easily be imported into Access as you mentioned.
You can probably figure out other ways to use the data once it's extracted.
Also it's freeware... I'll paste urls and brief notes about this stuff...
Hope some of it helps but please post back if you need something different...
