Abstract

This article describes a method for allowing users to upgrade a dual- sided diskette data base system to a fixed disk system, without having to rekey existing diskette data base information to fixed disk. The Personal Computer-based Convert Program provides a fast and easy to use method for converting existing dual-sided diskette data base files to larger expanded data base files on a fixed disk system. The major advantage of this program is to allow users to take advantage of a larger and faster fixed disk data base system without having to rekey existing diskette file information to fixed disk. The following description illustrates the logic flow of the Convert Program as presented in the figure above.
