Unanswered: Blob binary format
I have here a weird problem, I received a database in Paradox format with 3 files for each table, db/mb/px, I could manage to convert them all into access by access import but there's some BLOB fields which I couldn't do anything about them. so I downloaded a tool called DATABASE WORKSHOP and I could get more detail of these blob and I could convert one of the table into dBase format and convert it into access but the data inside is screwed after at , how do I manage to recover it and where exactly i can read a good article about these binary data, Couldn't find anything useful in borland website
here's the table structure
CREATE TABLE data1(
there's also another table contain audio files, after I export it to Dbase and I import it into access the audio which suppose to be OLE format is become Memo and it is also screwed
here's the table struction for the second table
any help is highly appreciated
by the way I'm not so sure which version of paradox is it , any way to determine it for sure?

I think nearly all of these fiels are in fact Memo fields.
Have you tried importing them as such?The only failure is not trying to do it.
