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.
free viewer
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
