    dbase level 7 vs dbase level 5

    I've found teh following differences:

    - Using the 'NUMERIC(p,s)' datatype with Level 7 tables seems to be erroneous, the 'DECIMAL(p,s)' type works for both.

    - The Level 5 .dbf's open without any errors in MS Excel 2000, the Level 7's throw an error, and are badly formated when you try it with them.

    Hope this is helpful.

    Gareth.
