Title

Working with a converted .dbf file

Post

I converted a .dbf file from my PC ACT! database program.  The converted file has columns headed "UniqueID", "CTIME", "ETIME", etc.

Can I delete those columns filled with what appears to be gibberish?

Once I do that how do I use the remaining converted file?   Is this now my database file or is there something else I must do?  I have iMAC Snow Leopard running FileMaker pro 11.

I'm afraid I purchased more powerful software than I needed but once I can figure out how to do the limited things I need to do, I'll be fine.  I want to use the converted database file to print labels from time to time.
