Dbase3 DBF file import is off by one character

I am porting an application written for Alpha 4 (a DOS database application).

It uses dbase3 DBF database format files that I am importing to FM7


All of my df3 files import fine into filemaker except one.

The problem is for this one file the data is skewed by one character.


I tried Windows ANSI and ASCII DOS character sets and get the same problem.


I have attach a screen shot showing a good table import and the one table with the problem.


Anyone know what causes this problem and how to work around it?
