Replacement of rapidfile

Replacement of rapidfile

Post by Samuel Stammbac » Sun, 31 Dec 1899 09:00:00

Hi all,

I'm developping an application oriented on Database with D2 for a small
company. The Director want to control my program using RapidFile (old dos
app.). The problem is that my Dababases are Paradox 5.
My question:
Is there a new version of rapidfile for windows, or if not, a small app.
abble to read paradox database, and (specially) construct visual request
(MSQuery doesn't work very good)
thank's for any reply

1. Converting Rapidfile without rapidfile software

I have several rapidfile files that I need to convert to something I
can work with like dbase, Access or SAS.

I don't have the rapidfile software.  I also currently don't have
dbase but am searching to see if anyone in the company has it
installed on their computer.

I tried to use foxpro but it seams that I would need to know the names
of the fields in the file first, setup a foxpro table then "append
from" using the rpd type.

When I tried to guess the field names and sizes, I found that the data
wasn't being imported correctly.

In dbase, would I need to know the field names and sizes first?

Does anyone have any ideas that I can try?  I really need to access
the data.
