: thank's for all ask!

If you open it with a good programmers editor (i.e one that does not barf on binary files) then you can easily see most of the textual content of the form.

The unix strings utility will also dump out much of the content of the fmx file.

Needless to say, this is not a normal way to examine the form, only a work around if you don't have the fmb, or have a task such as trying to figure out which version of an fmb matches an existing fmx when some bozo has messed up the version control. Received on Wed Sep 03 2008 - 14:58:07 CDT
