Hmm.  see if this works through NXb3.
anyways, obhack:
3 years ago I was asked to change a biomed research center
>from  mac->pc.  Easy, except they had a big database of
patients, dosages, etc.  This was custom written in
pilemaker pro.  I had to convert this to dbase, which wasn't
fun, as among other things the database was about 10 megs.
involved splitting the database(a-f), etc, then exporting,
then writing dbase code to import it.  still working though.
