RE: arsclist Cataloging Software
Sound Librarian, which I have but never got started on, uses the Microsoft
database program. I don't know how it differs in the raw hexadecimals from
other programs, nor how CATraxx looks in the raw, nor what the old dbase
programs look like in the raw. I suspect that all post-dase software
allows for conversion *from* dbase but that it is not true that all
post-dbase programs can convert into any other post-dbase program, as you
are evidently finding out.
I'd like to urge that we all choose dbase to do our initial work so that
we can all easily make conversions. But I also know that dbase is
restricted to keyboard characters. This is a limitation when trying to use
umlauts, accents, and so on. I can usually fill them back in, though.
