betrieve database conversion (text)

By dgreen03 ·
I need to convert a betrieve database file which is in ansi format to a text file for input to an access database. the file is somewhat corrupted and while records are intact, they are not in consecutive order. I'm thinking vbasic might help me extract the records to another file. Any comments ?

If you can open this data file and check to see the first character and compare that with the other file (which is not corrupted). By removing these characters in the beginning of file may help you
all the best

You may want to consider is importing it into Access and then make it a text file.
