I have a customer with an old program called Centerpiece (for portfolio management) in need to have one of the reports changes.

The program is using btrieve (now pervasive) as the database. I found the DDF file here C:\Centerpiece5\SystemData\TransactionFields\TransactionFields.DDF

I see files with an extention .frm which look like the reports but don't know what to use to edit them.

Is there anyone who would be able to point out how to edit the a report?

To have a true set of DDF's, you need a minimum of 3: FILE.DDF, FIELD.DDF, and INDEX.DDF. If you don't have these, then you don't have enough to write true SQL queries. Can you find these files?
