I have a dbf file that I need to view the contents of. When I try to open in Visual FoxPro 9 It tells me it's missing the memo file.

how do I open the dbf file without the fpt file?

The file is encoded (formatted) by the program that created it.
Other similar programs may not have the same decoding feature.
Open Office [ http://www.openoffice.org ] may be capable of viewing the file.

Refer to the following thread for some possible solutions. maybe it'll help you somehow.

Just a note: You should create a backup copy even for the first option. When working on file with false memo you must not touch the memo field. The only action you should do is to copy non-memo fields into another table.
