I have an XYZ.DBF file that I've imported into Excel 2007 but it doesn't parse properly on the import. The entire record goes into Column A of the Excel 2007 worksheet, Sheet 1. Columns B and up don't have anything in them. I think a record key is in the first several characters of each record. To do the import I select the file from Windows Explorer>right-click to Open and then select Excel. When I've tried double-clicking the file I am prompted with the select the program to use.
FWIW, the actual extension (DBF) IS capitalized!
To import Visual FoxPro data into an Microsoft Excel worksheet. Open a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet. From the Data menu, choose Get External Data. Microsoft Query opens. In the Select Data Source dialog box, select a Visual FoxPro data source and then click Use.
