Porting Windows APP To Web App - Database Question
Well - i'm not really porting but I'm makeing a copy of a windows-only app in an online form (LAMP) and the client has been using this app for about 15 years (since DOC).
All of their data is stored in a file with a .D01 extension. When I open the file I see their data mixed with tons of formatting etc.
My question is - does anyone have good ideas about getting this data out of this obscure format and into something that I can import into mysql? XLS, CSV, SQL - anything??
I would very much appreciate anyones insight.

If it isn't a binary format you could write a perl script to convert it to csv and use that to import it into mysql.You never have to change anything you got up in the middle of the night to write. -- Saul Bellow
