    Hello,

    I am the head of a small non profit (501c3) feline registry that
    several years ago had a dbase program created to keep track of members,

    cats, registration numbers, etc. The son of the original founder wrote
    the program, and ive been trying to convert it to Access. I can get to
    all the data, the problem lies in that I cannot access the indexes to
    know how all the data fits together as the person who wrote the program

    no longer has the original files. the program, in it's entirety,
    including all the data, is less than 2 Mb. Would anyone be willing to
    point me in the rifght direction to anyone who would be willing to do
    the conversion for a nomial fee, or failing that, tell me what tool i
    would require in order to do it myself. I have tried a couple of
    "freeware" conversion utilities that did not work. there is an .exe
    file that would probably need to be decompiled in order to find what im

    looking for.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
    Thank You

    Ken,

    I'd be willing to look into it. I haven't programmed in dBase for over
    10 years, but I wouldn't mind giving it a try... no charge.
