This is probably a fruitless task, but I’m trying to give it a go.
I used to run a database in Omnis, first 5, then 7. I think 7.1 was the last version I had. I changed jobs in about 1992 and stopped using it, and never got round to exporting any of the data. I thought the files had been lost.
I was wrong: I’ve just found the old data files. I no longer have a version of Omnis 7, of course. I’ve found Omnis Studio, and the FAQ suggests that conversion from 7 to Studio is possible. Studio won’t open the files I’ve found.
I don’t need to convert the entire database, and I don’t need to run the old application. I’d just like to extract the data, in any readable form (CSV, Excel, FMP, whatever). There’s only about 500k of the stuff.
Any suggestions gratefully received.
