Hi Stefan.
I can reproduce your small example and get the years too.
So I think it is a problem with my DEF-file.
The DEF-file is created by an external process.
I am new here. Can I upload a small file?
Many thanks for your comment, Holger

    Hi Holger,

    You can't upload, but if it's a text file, you can put it's contents here between code tags.


      Hi Stefan.
      I would like to upload the DBF-file which is a binary.
      Do you know a validator for DBF files?
      Thanks in advance, Holger

        Hi Holger,

        There is a utility included in DBD::XBase named dbfdump that might be used as validator. You can use it to post here the result from the following command:

        dbfdump --info file.dbf

        It can be used also to dump the contents of the database. Also Excel or Open/Libre Office can open DBFs (if you didn't know already).

        Regards, Stefan
