This question is about a problem that is a tough nut to crack. I, therefore, do not expect that there is an easy solution. Still, I am hoping for a nudge in the right direction.
I want to convert thousands of database files that are called ESW into JSON so as to be able to import them into Tropy. To give you an idea of how an ESW file looks like, I am attaching one example taken from my database.
How to best go about the conversion, the import and the whole migration?
Should I use “ConvertCSV” or would a specifically written script be the better option?
