How can I export an old database to modernize it?

Episode 1039 (2:03:27)

Bill from Buena Park CA

Bill has a really old database written in Q&A and it has a lot of data in it. It's 35 years old, and he's concerned that he'll lose it all. Leo says that backup is vital, but the real issue is to be sure Bill guards that program. He has to make an "export" that's readable by other databases. CSV is probably the best option. It would allow him to export it into Excel or other programs. Leo says it's time to modernize the database itself. Leo suggests hiring a consultant who can do it.
