dBase file conversion and extract utilities

If you need to convert old PC database files from dBase, Excel or Access will do the trick. If you don't have or don't want to use those, there are a couple of other options.
PeekDBF is a utility that will let you read dBase files. Runs on older versions of Windows, Windows NT/2000/XP and on Linux. Demo available.
DBF2CSV is an old SIMTEL utility that converts dBase files to CSV files. CONVR803 is another SIMTEL utility you might want to try.
Parse Rat is a very popular commercial utility for reading and converting a wide variety of file utilities.
White Town Software publishes a variety of DBF conversion utilities. These can be run as applications or also from a command-line
Finally, though increasingly not featured in the documentation, it remains fairly easy to read dBase files using C# or Visual Basic.
