Since AutoSlate has been discontinued, I had to find another app to use. Unfortunately, the app that met my requirements cannot import AutoSlate.pdb or AutoSlate.xls files. I've also discovered that AutoSlate.xls files are NOT really Excel files, according to my spreadsheet program, Numbers.

So, I need a way to open either the pdb or "xls" file, re-arrange the columns so that they match the arrangement of my new application, and then save the file as a tab-delimited format file or at least as a TRUE xls file using a Mac OS application that runs in at least Mac OS 10.4.x.

    Unfortunately we do not know of a tool that automates the process you're inquiring about. If you were using, or had access to a Windows machine, we'd suggest using AutoSlate Extractor, a free third-party tool that exports the Auto Slate PDB file to a CSV file:

    However, apart from Auto Slate and the Auto Slate Conduit, we have no other Auto Slate export or import tools or apps. Sorry!
