 Converting Reflex data to ???

I have used Reflex, by "Boralnd" for years and have entered 13 000
records using this older flat style data base program.  I want to import
the data to a modern program.  What current program would import the
data with the least amount of problems??

Wow! Reflex!
If you can get reflex to export its data as a row/column report without
any page headers or page breaks, any database product ought to be able
to import the data as sdf format. 13K records is not a problem.

Roger:

I have found that using the report functions of Reflex can create very
fine delimited files that can be imported into just about any database.
The real problem in a transfer to a relational db is to create new tables
that are correctly normalized, but once you figure the new schema, you
can use your delimited files to populate the tables. (Usually, a delimited
file uses commas to separate columns, and perhaps quotes to enclose
a column.) Otherwise, I bet you don't find any support for this old db.
Good luck.
