If your case is still persist, I have developed a solution to resolve the Nafitha conversion to Windows and I can give you an Excel based file with correct Arabic encoding. Contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org + 0 Votes Very simple way... yazan5 6 years ago 1-Convert your legacy database to CSV, comma seperated you should know that for sure, then save it as .TXT file. 2-Open the .TXT file with Internet Explorer 5.x or higher, change character set (encoding) to "Arabic(ISO)" or "Arabic(ASMO 708)", they're the same standard, this will take a while when a large file is handled. 3-In IE, from file menu, choose "Save As" and change the last combo box of "Encoding" to "Arabic(Windows)". 4-Rename .TXT to .CSV then import that to Excel. + 0 Votes Very Easy but some work has to be done tas_jameel 6 years ago 1- save a text report from your DBF file exmp DBIII+( Report from emp_rep.rpt to file emp_rep.txt. 2- from Windows 3.11 open the convert from Accs. use the platform nafitha v4. 3. open your TEXT file the one you saved as emp_rep.txt (at this stage you should be able to read the file in Arabic. 4. from the menu of the convert chose file->save as (the save the file in a new name such as emp_rep.doc) this will save the file in Arabic but with windows coding. 5. from the Excel menu on windows XP open file->open and the type the name of the file emp_rep.doc. 6.
