    the file extension has a specific meaning

    if you want to process the data in the dbf file then I would suggest you Import (File | Get External Data and select if you want a link or import.
    I woudl reccommend that you mport the data into a blank Access database.

    You will need to select the correct xbase filter (dbase II,III,IV...... foxpro etc.)
    renaming the file doesn't change the internal data format.
