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?
This is a known issue when importing from DBF memo fields.
