Someone in my office has been using the old Leading Edge Nutshell DOS application on a 95 box. In my attempts to modernize her work/routines, I'm attempting to convert the database to a newer format so that I can give her an XP workstation, but I have unsuccessful in accessing the data in anything except the old Nutshell software.
From what I've read, the current Filemaker Pro is somewhat descended from the old Nutshell software. I tried opening, converting, and repairing from within Filemaker ... to no avail. The Nutshell .DB files appear to be flat database files. I can open them in UltraEdit, but it would take months to clean up the data by hand (assuming that I can 'see' all of it).
I had run across a discussion here dating back about a year or so, talking about Nutshell and Filemaker so I thought maybe there might be someone still around who has run across this software before and/or maybe even had luck converting it to another format.
Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.
