I used the old microsoft card index successfully but cannot access the information now on XP as I only get unintelligible nonsense on either wordpad or notepad. Can I regain access to the cards or at least is there a way of making sense of the reports I can find on the two pads?

it would seem that your files are in a spreadsheet or database form. You need one of these to try and open it. If you do not have either of these on your pc you can download the free office prog or it is on some of the cover disks. Just type free office prog into google.

Thank you all. I have installed Open Office but cannot still make any sense of the old cardfile reports. As you will gather I am not very bright in computer matters and am not sure what is meant by file format - the programmes I would love to find have the letters CRD and JOT after them Does this help.
