Thread: 2.0 ver..

    2.0 ver..


    We are using office 97. Only the old style dbf2.0 versions will load
    into excell. We have to export the files now to get them into a format we
    can use. I was wondering if excell 2000 can handle the new style dbf, or
    if there is a fix for this problem.

    Lori,

    You can use ODBC to import the VFP data into Excel.

    As far as I know from my experience, there is no difference in 'loading' dbf2.0/dbf5/dbf6
    FP tables into Excel 97/2000 versions.
    I use commands like copy to .. xls or copy to ...xl8. Also I use Excel Automation
    and can not see any significant differences.
