I've been landed with an old dos based package to be converted into FileMaker, the files are in DAT format but won't come across in any readable format.

I've tried changing to txt, CSV and tab.

I've tried notepad and excel but all I get is 1 line data all over the show!

The database must be COBOL as I have a trial of a COBOL DAT reader that shows the records fine but it's damn expensive and I was Hoping there is a workaround?
