PRB: File Imported from MS-DOS Doesn't Appear in FoxBASE+/Mac

PSS ID Number: 100559

Article Last Modified on 6/28/2004



The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft FoxBASE+ for Macintosh 2.01



This article was previously published under Q100559

SYMPTOMS

When a file is first imported from MS-DOS to the Macintosh, it is not automatically tagged as a FoxBASE+/Mac file until it is opened by FoxBASE+/Mac. This means the file will not appear on the desktop with the proper icon and it will not show up in the FoxBASE+/Mac File Finder dialog boxes.

RESOLUTION

To open the imported file, click the All Files check box, and select the desired file.

After FoxBASE+/Mac accesses a file for the first time, the file will thereafter appear on the desktop with the proper icon and will be listed in the appropriate File Finder dialog boxes. This information applies to all file types, including programs, databases, memory variable save files, reporting descriptions, and label descriptions.
