Probably the cleanest way to go - it's still kinda sloppy, but should, in theory, work, is to get a Win96 file for your area, then use Don's free WinXX data converter to downgrade the data from a Win96 to a Win95 file

Just keep in mind that your PRO-95 won't copy digital systems - the 96 can. Mike

Just to round out the discussion (particularly for other Win95 users wishing to do the same) would be to use Excel to copy/paste data from the database. This is not nearly as clean, as you need to do some editing to clean up the data so that the Pro-95 will recognize it. Hopefully the Data Converter does much of this for you...

Excel Copy/Paste Special to Software - The RadioReference Wiki

Personally speaking, if Don were to contact Assaf (the author of FreeScan) and if Assaf were to give Don the code (for a fair price, natch) for EZ-Grab, it would make this process very nearly painless. I suspect that most of the Win9x software users would gladly fork over USD10 for the upgrade. But I suspect this is something of a pipe dream...and in no way am I trying to speak for either party. Just thinking out loud...
