Subject: Richard Hockey's DBF macros
Does anyone have a copy of Richard Hockey's DBF macro's for reading and
writing dBASE files, that they have successfully used under 6.11 for Win
3.1. I have copies from a couple of different sources. However, none of
them work. I searched SI's web site as well as the File Contribution
Server, and didn't find copies in either place. I downloaded a version from
Ciesin and it failed as well.
Perhaps I am using them wrong. I once saw a comment that the macros only
work for dBASE III files, so I specifically saved a file as a dBASE III file
type, to no avail. A copy of the code I am using follows. Any insight
would be appreciated.
%dbftosas (in= e:\brfss\analytic\conta4a.dbf, out = test);
Thanks in advance,
