A key program which was written by one of you fellows, I think Stu, was called a Tab Converter. My procedure was to input the name, address, phone number and other data into a data base program. I would then export the data to a tab separated file. To adapt it for use in a word processing program I needed to convert some of the tabs into carriage returns. This made it possible to paste the word processing file into a program such as PageMaker and have the data displayed as shown on the attached photo. My problem is that the Tab Converter program only worked on a Mac with the Classic mode and my old lap top with the Classic mode has died. At 84 I am not too sure that I could learn how to use the new version of Future Basic to create a program that will run on System 10 A feature that was not on the old program was the ability to have the program slide fields up when there was nothing in the field above it. I have been doing that manually which is not a real big deal but that feature would certainly be helpful. Would any of you fellows like to volunteer creating such a program for me that will run on my Mac Book ================================ Ron, I'm quite busy at the moment or I would help. Translating tabs to carriage returns is simple, but the user control and interface would take some work (but possibly not a lot). If you have the source code to tab converter, it is possible it will either compile as is to run in OS X or could be easily modified to do so. I would suggest asking Stu for the source and/or ask him if he would make the necessary changes for OS X. Brian S.
