Does anybody know how a Foxpro file can be exported/converted to
a FilemakerPro 3.0 ( for the Mac ) file without loosing data from
the memo fields in the foxpro file ( .fpt file ) ?

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Atul,

There is a topic devoted to importing FoxPro files in FileMaker Pro 3.0's
online help. It includes the following outline program which will enable
you to import FoxPro tables (including memo fields) into FMP. It can be
easily adapted to your own needs.

Hope this helps.

Roger
