Select 6.0 - the data format is the same as in version 5, so it will work.

As Don wrote, it is essential to remove the read only attribute after
copying the files from the CD. (Files on a CD get this always set.)

Hello,

I thought also but i got the following message:

No messages can be found in this folder or another application is running
that has the required files open.
Please select another folder or try closing applications that may have files
open.

First i tried this import from CD - same result, after that i copied from CD
to hard disk but still the same problem.

Best regards,

Peter.

Hi,
Create a folder on the HD for the DBX files. Copy them from the CD to that
folder. Select all DBX files in that folder, right-click> properties> remove
the "read only" attribute.

OE6 should be able to import them.

Hope this helps,
