Cannot open dbf (dbase) files

Post by TJBaker » Fri Jan 10, 2014 8:29 pm

Any attempt to open a dbf file results in "unknown file format" error.

Planmaker mobile rev 685.1217

Why does this not work?

Suggestions?

There is not much we can say without the file. Please send it to forum(at)softmaker.de referring to that thread if possible. Thank you!

I will try to attach a sample db file here in addition to sending the file via email. Thanks,

I'll rename the .dbf adding .txt to see if that will allow me to upload here.

That problem is reporducible for me (the same file opens properly in PlanMaker 2012 for Windows). I referred that problem to the developers and will inform you here as soon as I have more information.

That problem should no longer occur in the next version of PlanMaker for Android.
