A friend needs to export the info out of the dos database program called My Treasures. There does not
seem to be a export function in the program. Any ideas.

Is there a print function? Maybe you could try printing to a file.

Hi
There is a print option. But he wants to import it into a larger database and does not want to type in thousands of entries.

Once you print to a file, you need to write something to read the data from that file and transfer it into the new program. Being a DOS program the data is probably not stored in an SQL database. If it was, you might be able to use one of the database programs to import the data.

I'm thinking that getting it "printed" to a file would at least get the raw data available as plaintext. then you drag that file into a decent text editor and you can figure out a way to comma delimit the data with a search/replace function or macro to make it easier to import into a modern database.
It may be easier to post the program+data files somewhere where we can see it to offer better advice, assuming the data isn't private of course.
