Filter Conversion Program
Current Version 4.00 April 90
This program will solve the problem of loading Excel worksheets
or Dbase files into into Ventura DTP. Normally Tabs would not
line up if you save the Excel or Dbase file as Text and import
the text file into Ventura. That is caused by proportional
space fonts. How it works, the program reads the file created
by Excel or Dbase and finds and replaces all commas with TABs
and outputs into output file. The program will also remove
double quotes that are created from Text columns.
To use the program.
1. Save your Excel or Dbase file as CSV (Comma separated value).
2. Run Filter. It will ask you for input file and output file.
You also must enter the path of the input and output file.
3. Run Ventura DTP, and import a Wordstar Version 4.0 file using
the file that the filter program created.
You will notice that all the tabs line up.!
