Trimble Feature Codes -> Desckeys

We have our Trimble TSC3 setup and working nicely to collect field data using Trimbles feature codes... question is, is there a way to import/convert these feature codes into DescKeys... I'm working on a convoluted way but in the end I don't think it will work because I can't save it to Access-97 format... Is there an easy way or am I doomed... Thanks_DRG

I don't have anything Trimble to know what format(s) it can save to. Can you export the keys to XML or plain text file? Can you post a small example of either one, or both?

In the Trimble Feature Editor the available file types to export to are: see attached clip.

 

Unfortunatly the export to .csv doesn't seem to collect all the information. If it would I think I could put the list together, but I would still have to find a way to save-as access97... Thanks

 

--Sorry for the delay I've been out sick--

Why does it need to be saved as an MDB? (Access97) 

 

If you can, would you post a small example fxl file along with a csv created from that file?

 

I'm asking for these because I think it will be possible to write a progarm to import them directly to C3D...but without knowing what these files look like I can't investigate any further. I've searched Google for sample files, with no luck.

Either add it to a zip file or just rename it and add a ".txt" to the end. Then it will post here just fine, as long as it is < 1.5mb
