Export Data from a Progress Database - Version 10.2b

Hi - We're looking to change our current software supplier over the next 6 months. One of the tasks they've assigned us to is to export the current data into a readable format so they're able to look at the data their end.

The only option I'm aware of is to use the Dump/Reload facility within Database Administration, as I've used this on a handful of occasions to improve performance. I've looked at the dump files (.d extension) from the last dump performed & have opened up one of the table dumps within excel. I can read the data but there are no headings associated with the columns so the data is next to useless, as I can only take a guess as to what some of the columns mean.

Can you please suggest the best approach/steps for exporting data from a progress DB into something like excel/access?

Many thanks
