I'm trying to figure out a way to convert an old *.dbf file. Most of the fields convert ok, however a few key fields show up in strange symbols like the telephone numbers, addresses and fax numbers. For example a telephone number appears as the following:
This should read: 251-5925. An address can show up as:
This should read: 1720 Rupert Street
I am using CDBF to view the data, however I don't know what to use to convert those characters to a readable format. This is my only copy of the data, so I cannot recreate the information.
Does anyone have any suggestions on what I can do?
Unfortunately I only have the old *.exe file viewer for the data. It was created back in 1996-97 and the company is no longer in existence. The viewer is only about 200kb, but don't know what to look for when I dissassemble the app. Any hints?
