No! Some of us use non-standard extensions and would hate to see them disappear from the File Open list.

Jack,

The point I'm trying to get across on this thread is that it's very easy to
fix, but hard to define.

At the same time, remembering the "last file extension" filter, as George
suggested, would mitigate the need to be exacting in the definition, because
users for whom the definition is overly restrictive could select "all files"
and rest assured that it would stay that way.

Definitely.  Is this the same kind of behaviour we see in giants, like
MSWord or WordPerfect.  Would this be easy to fix, without rewriting the
entire source code.

Regars to all

Hi,

The File Open dialogue currently shows all files.  Does anyone else agree
that it would be better if it only showed those file types that can be
opened by DBT?

In the event that a user does try to open, for example, a .xls file, no
error message is displayed.  The file just fails to open.

Cheers.

Ian
