I venture to say that each record begins with the date field, but i don't know how to separate the fields to import in an access table or a sql table.  Thank you.

HI. I know nothing about Clipper but, I downloaded that sample file gave it a .dbf extension

then I downloaded a free .dbf viewer (http://www.dbf2002.com/DBFVIEW.EXE) and this is what I see.

So, it looks like you should be able to find products that can read your data and put it into more other formats.
(the "not free" version of the tool I used exports to
CSV, HTML, SDF, SQL, TXT, XLS, XLSX, XML and to MS SQL, MySQL, Oracle and PostgreSQL scripts from GUI or command line.

btw: I have no financial interest in that tool.
There may well be others that are similar/better for a better price - I didn't research that extensively.

I have tried everything listed here with no success. the sample file in Portlet Paul's posting is from dbfviewer's example, not my sample.

Oh, I'm sorry. I just re-tried it with your sample file and it certainly isn't producing good results.

Regret to say I can't offer anything else on this
