    Dbase3 DBF file import is off by one character

    markligas

      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?

      Thanks.
