I have been asked by a friend to help him to convert a WordPerfect file
into a Paradox database file. And I am stumped.
The original document
was set up to be printed onto 3x5 cards with 9 basic fields. We decided
that instead of printing this file the information would be better in a
database. There are the 9 fields on 6 lines with no uniform method of
distinguishing between fields. My first dilemma is how to convert the
3000 records to a form that Paradox can read, in the easiest format.
is the format of the WP document.
Branch Name, State/Province
Historian's name Historian's address Years as historian
Years of report (cumulative or annual)
Thanks in advance for any help,
