BTRIEVE record Manager Version 4.11b (Need to convert BTR files)
Posted on 2009-02-16
I work for a company that has given me a big under taking and I need some help in getting started. I have about 50 Manufacturing locations. The program that run the plants was written in QuickBasic (I do not have the source code). The program uses BTRIEVE record Manager version 4.11b or a sub function of it the read/write data to the BTR files. The program runs on either a OLD 286 ISA card rack system or a TOWER PC that could have either windows XP or straight DOS.
I am needing to pull information out of the BTR files and dump the data into a SQL Server Database. Later down the road I may need to write back to the BTR files. I do not have any of the DES files. About the best I can do is use BUTIL -STAT to get the information on the file and of course when I try the -Recover option I get a unreadable txt file. Can someone please help get me pointed in the right direction?
