Re: Problem with DBI, DBD::XBase
in thread Problem with DBI, DBD::XBase
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
You can't upload, but if it's a text file, you can put it's contents here between code tags.
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).
