    Question Unanswered: convert dataflex to Access

    Simplied explaination ... I am converting 2 dataflex files into an access database. I open a new access db, I've created an odbc data source (with a dataflex driver) to the 2 files ..... and then import those to files into 2 tables.

    Problem ....
    Table 'B' is linked to table 'A'. In table 'B' there is a field that represents the record number of table 'A' that it is linked to. It says "14366". Yet, when I look in table 'A', the ordinal position of that record is "11684". I've open "file" 'A' in a hex editor and the record is indeed in the 11684th position. I don't know how to resolve these 2 records together in access.

    BTW, I know almost nothing about dataflex.

    Could it be that the recordnumber in table 'B' represents a different kind of indexing on table 'A'? How would I resolve that if that is what it is?

    Anyways, thanks for any kind of help in advance.

    I'm sorry I don't have an answer to this question, but.
    I am in the process of exactly the same plight.

    I too am converting a dataflex to Access and would be interested on how the DF tableslink to eachother.
