I have a table that I want to export to a dbf IV.  I go to export and select dbase IV and try to export.  I get an error that says "Record is too large".  I'm not sure what to do to correct this.  What do I need to do to get the table to export?

I'm afraid the record is too large as it can have too many fields or a field with too many data.
Is there perhaps a memofield in the table ?

No memo fields are present.  The data is in text format and Number format.  The numbers are doubles.  What size is too large for a dbf?

Do make sure that your field names are not longer than 8 characters and do not contain spaces.
