Import script would previously accept .txt in fp5 but now will only accept .tab

Post


     I'm upgrading some /ancient/ fp5 dbs to fmp11 (we'll be moving to 12 soon, but still in the works). 

     The fp5 script would accept a tab delimited file with a .txt extension (the file in question is from a system that is out of our hands), but now it requires a .tab extension.  There's no easy way to programmatically change the .txt to .tab, so is there a setting in fp11 that'll disregard the extension and simply recognize the file type?

     These DBS and associated layouts and scripts have 0 documentation, and I'm pretty much a n00b, so I'm more or less flying blind.  :-/

     Suggestions, folks?
