I have recently installed a database application using MS SQL for a
client who now wants their old data converted for use in the new
system. I have copies of all of the old data files, which seem to have
extensions such as, .tir, .tpr, .tdr, .txr, .tr0, .tr1, .tr2, etc. The
old system is DOS based and is about 14 years old.
From a post on Comp.Databases, someone suggested that the files might
be R/83 PICK (or PRIME?) files. Is this true? If so, does anyone know
of a way that I can access the data (preferably through ODBC, but I'd
settle for just about anything.) I have *no* PICK experience. Is PICK
a programming language, a database format or an operating system all
it's own? From the limited exposure reading the web pages that I've
found it's not very clear.
Thanks for any help!
