    Pat,

    Welcome to the lounge as a 1st time poster.

    According to this post the file was created by Borland InterBase {never heard of it myself}. I'm also not aware of any software that will read that format. Research ongoing!

    Update Wikipedia Article on Interbase.

    You can buy Interbase for $60.00 if you need the data.

    Hi Thanks for that, it is for a community in Spain that I help out. They do not have any money to buy software....oap's....I can access the data, but cannot copy or edit, so it will be a long job transferring it all to Access, anyway thanks again for the help...pat

    Pat,

    Here's a link to DB Elephant converter free trial. You might want to give it a try and see what it does.
    Although the PC World D/L page says it's $60.00. The DB Elephant site has it for $40.00 might be well
    worth it for the time you would save. YMMV!
