I would recommend saving the database as a tab delimited text file and then
importing it into works, if it doesn't have too many fields, say more than 6
or 8. More than that, take it into Excel and then Exchange it into
QuickFigure works. Reason for the change: better scrolling. This assumes
that text in each field is limited to a word or two. long text cells
