The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Word for Windows, versions 2.0, 2.0a, 2.0a-CD, 2.0b, 2.0c - Microsoft Windows operating system versions 3.0 and 3.1


The following error message may occur when you open a dBase file in Word for Windows if Q+E for Microsoft Excel is running and you opened a dBase file before you started Word:

Word cannot start the converter DBASE.CONV

This error message does not occur while Q+E is running if you did not open a dBase file in Q+E prior to opening a dBase file in Word.


We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.


Exit Q+E before you open a dBase file in Word.


If Q+E has already loaded its dBase converter, Word cannot load its dBase converter (DBASE.CNV).

The dBase products included here are manufactured by Ashton-Tate, vendors independent of Microsoft; we make no warranty, implied or otherwise, regarding these products’ performance or reliability.
