    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.
