However once knowing how its all setup its not very difficult and is quite straight forward when you think in legacy terms.
    I am curious, was this program still in action ? or are you just saving/rescuing old Data for a Company

    since 2010 the number of Tigers are rising again in 2016 - 3900 were counted. with Baby Callas it's 3901, my wife and I had 2-3 months the privilege of raising a Baby Tiger.

    I'm amazed it is still in action, because of the age, it is probably only 16bit or less. I wish my clients would of let me use a emulator, I could of keep programming in Clipper till the day I retired.

    Glad you solved your problem, tough problems can cause a lot of stress but when you solve them, it's a great feeling of accomplishment..
