Hi all. I'm very new to databases but i have a project that i must carry out and i'm stuck so i need your help pls! I have a phone catalog with many many numbers for athens/greece but these numbers can only be viewed with an exe programm coming with it in tha catalog cd. Now .. what i want is ... to take tha dbf file i found in the cd, and convert it in xls format, so i can open it with excel to make it whatever i want!

The problem is that when i open the dbf file with some free programs i found in the internet.. i see some fonts that are not understandable. The language is greek. When i open some ather dbf files ine the same cd the fonts are correct and make sense!! I can't understand what's going on.

onather problem...: as i mentioned before.. some other dbf files wthin the same cd-rom are shown corectly in the dbf viewer program. But when i export it in xls format (excel) an then reopen it... i see again fonts that are not understanable.

what i'm doing wrong? or do i need any tool that i don't have?

sorry but i'm vary new to all these...
