I have several real old dBASE data files from 1985 that I would like to
get the data from and convert to LO Base. I keep reading about LO being
able to access a dBASE file, but I am having trouble doing so. I tried
the new database wizard and although it created the new Base database
structures, when I tried to open one of the dBASE files, it opens in
writer, not Base. There are no tables listed in the new Base database.
The wizard did not allow me to select the actual files, just the
directory they are in. It didn't list any of the ".DBF" files. Maybe I
am asking too much of LO, but I was hoping the dBASE data would show up
in a Base table. Any help would be appreciated.
Running: LO 126.96.36.199 under Linux.
Thanks in advance.
