Thanks Gerry.  I will play with this information and see what I can do.  Some of it is above my head, but you were very specific with saving the file so I think I can follow your instructions.

Yes, but I am trying to migrate stuff away from that Windows-only
platform (specifically to SQLite, which runs on at least Windows, Linux,
and Mac OS X).

Sure. Almost all modern DB proggies can save to and read from
tab-delimited text files.

Select a table and go thru the menus (this is how it is in Access 97):
Save As/Export
To external file
Save as type--text files

Hope this helps.
