Convert/Migrate SCO OpenServer Database?

Recommended Posts

As the title says.... we have an old SCO OpenServer box with a database that contains archived info. We can't shut it down for this reason. I found an old database export from years ago in .DBF format, which I can easily convert to an Excel spreadsheet. But the problem is that it's the newest export we have and it's from 2006. I need one that covers through 2013 after they stopped inputting data.

Is there a way to either:

1. Run another export?

2. Connect to it via ODBC (I have the root credentials)?

If I can somehow get this database into Windows in whatever format, we can shut this box down. Another "option" is to virtualize it, but that's complicated and it sounds like putting lipstick on a pig to me.

All help is appreciated.
