 Need help converting Reflex to Paradox

I have a five-year-old database with 770 records and 24 fields.  It exists as a Reflex 2.0
file.  All fields are text, except one is a memo field.  I am trying to convert the file to a
MSOffice Access file by first converting from Reflex to Paradox.  Reflex memo fields will hold
up to 8000 characters and I have many entries in the memo field that are around 4000
characters.  All entries in the text fields are short enough that they export from Reflex
fine, but Reflex truncates the memo field entries at 140 characters.  I've tried the Reflex
"automatic field width adjust" menu selection, but still the entries truncate.  Any
suggestions on how I can get Reflex to export to a Paradox, 1,2,3, or dBase file without this
data loss problem?

Leigh: every database handles the concept
of "memo fields" differently.. you best bet
is always to try to extract the memos to
files, strip off the field and export to
the other product without the memos, then
find out how the other product can insert
the files to their own memo fields..
