      To convert a spreadsheet to a dBase file, you only need to save 
the spreadsheet as a dBase file. Open the spreadsheet in Calc. Then 
click the Save As icon or use File > Save As or use Control+Shift+S. 
Name the file. The ALL FORMATS drop down list has dBase as one of its 
choices. Select it, select where to save it, and save it.
      Remember that doing this will only save the sheet that you see. If 
you have more than one sheet in your spreadsheet, you will need to 
select and save each sheet. If this is the case, you probably should 
also create a folder to hold all of these dBase files.
