Open foxpro .dat file RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I need to open a .dat file which apparently comes from visual foxpro. I say that apparently because I've other files with the dbf extension which come from visual foxpro. Moreover, it seems to be a very old version of foxpro, probably for msdos.

    I'm using VB6 though I think the method for accesing or opening these .dat files might be the same for VB .NET.

    I've tried to open a .dat file with notepad but the content seems to be coded, I mean it isn't common text.

    Can anybody help me?

    Thanks in advance.
