 btrieve for Dummies

Hi Folks,

I have several older tables, laid out by Btrieve.

Since I have little (none) experience or history
with this table type, I wonder if there is a simple
description of these ... along the lines of the
"... for Dummies" books   AND if there are any
simple table editors for this type that will
allow me to:.

        examine the Table contents, fields, and field links
        examine any Table Indexes ...   I willprobably  have
                                                                                                to modify the contents

Any advise will be happily received

Thanks

Paul

For current information on Btrieve you can check out
www.pervasive.com.  They own Btrieve and have quite a bit of info on
there site.  If you need a program to view your data and search/edit
or export you can check out BtSearch at www.nssdd.com.  If you don't
have DDF files then you can also use it to analyze your existing files
and create the DDF files.

My vote goes for "Periscope" program here.. it creates DDFs "on the fly"
:-)
Really amazing!

BTW, now I edit my Btrieve databases in Paradox for Windows with all the
benefits of search&replace, visual querry_by_example, easy reports etc.
Almost as easy as native Paradox/dBase stuff!

What a relief :-)
