Comments on NADC
NADC, written in Turbo C, is intended to be used to convert the accounting
data accumulated by Novell Netware 2.1 into a useful format for the
LAN administrator. Information such as user ID, workstation node number,
logged time, and I/O data are read from the file NET$ACCT.DAT and converted
to fixed-length records in ASCII format. This data, in turn, can be imported
by most popular spreadsheet and database packages.

I have included a sample dBase III routine for importing and manipulating
this data. After manipulating this data in dBase, I usually export it in
WKS format for use in Lotus 1-2-3 or Harvard Graphics to create graphs on
individual or departmental usage.

The only installation note is that this program must be run in the same
directory as the file NET$ACCT.DAT, which resides in the SYS:SYSTEM
directory. A suggestion would be to copy the file NET$ACCT.DAT into
another directory, run NADC against the copy, and then delete the original.
Deleting the original NET$ACCT.DAT is no problem to Netware because if it
doesn't find SYS:SYSTEM\NET$ACCT.DAT, then it creates a new one.

NADC update history

Version 1.0
This initial version was released as ACCTCVT.EXE

served no useful purpose. Windows were added for

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
