PDX2WP
A Paradox to WordPerfect Translation Utility
Shareware Version 1.22

PDX2WP is a pair of utilities used to translate Paradox tables to WordPerfect
documents, or to translate WordPerfect secondary merge documents to Paradox
tables. The resulting WordPerfect document may be either a WordPerfect table,
a WordPerfect secondary merge document, or WordPerfect parallel columns. The
WordPerfect secondary merge document must be a WP version 5.0 or later
document.

Revision History
================
- Version 1.22 relieves the 64 field limit for secondary merge files.
Any Paradox table may now be converted to a secondary merge file, using
the /M or /MF option, and all fields will be converted. However,
WordPerfect only recognizes field names for the first 100 fields. If
using the /MF option, fields beyond the 100th field must be referenced
in the primary merge document by the field number, not the field name.

- Version 1.21 fixes a bug which would cause a secondary merge file
created by PDX2WP with more than 32 fields to display unusable garbage
in the WP document. There is, however, a 64 field limit imposed on
secondary merge documents. This limit will be relieved in a future
version.

- Version 1.2 now provides the capability (using the /MF parameter) to
create a WordPerfect merge document which uses the {FIELD NAMES},
{END FIELD}, and {END RECORD} codes available in WordPerfect Version
5.1. The field names from the Paradox table are translated to the
WordPerfect document and become the field names for the secondary merge
document.

- Version 1.2 also fixes a problem converting date fields from the Paradox
table. Previously, the year for a date field would be converted to the
full four digits, resulting in a date such as 2/14/1991. This has been
fixed with this version, and the date will now be converted to the
standard two-digit notation, such as 2/14/91.

- Version 1.10 now provides the WP2PDX utility, which will analyze a
WordPerfect secondary merge document and translate it to a Paradox
table.

- Version 1.0, the original release.
