I have a client using an custom application written in RBASE 4.5++ for DOS.  He would like to convert his database records so they can be used in a custom application written in ACCESS.  I have been unable to locate any conversion tools. Any ideas or information?
Thanks?

Hey cwhatley!

  Depending on the amount of data and number of tables you might want to see if the application will "dump" the data in a CSV or any other compatible format that you can import.
 
  DataJunction has a package at http://www.datajunction.com/index.php?pg=1131

  Also see this RBase link: http://www.rbase.com/products/RBASE.htm#ODBC

In case you can't get ODBC drivers why don't you try to export to text file and then to access, your db must have a command mode or console or something like that...

can you EXPORT the data from the Tables to .txt files from the RBAse app? (comma separated variables would be best, if possible)

Worked with RBASE a long time ago.  However, you can use the RBASE export to export the data and then import it into Access.  RBASE is so old, I wouldn't even try and hunt down ODBC drivers for it....
