Hello M Belgrano,

That is because the Clipper (and also default VO) memo block size is 32 bits and ADS expects 64 bits. The quickest way to solve your problem is to download dbMax from: It has a 30 days test period. Open your DBF, I tested it with yout test.dbf and it works. Then select File/Export and select 64 bit memo field size. The exported file will open in ADS.
