I guess I'll have to look at it all again. All I've ever done is backups
and a few times exporting a note to RTF. The custom fields thing is news to
me. It always just looked to me that Organizer was the only format that NCU
supported. I'll have to go back and RTFM again to see what else I missed.

(If I understand correctly, you're saying that I just have to spit the ASCII
file out of DayTimer and I can then teach NCU what each column is.
