Tool to extract Data Interchange Format (DIF) file to Microsoft Excel file

DIF files are flat text files that supply specific information and in a standard format. This DIF Extractor converts all current Data Interchange Format (DIF) files into Microsoft Excel files.

A help guide is included to assist users. Further support is available by contacting ADHIS.

Please note, Excel is limited to 65,536 rows so 'All Bulls" file and 'Cow ABV' files for larger centres will need to be reduced before using this program.
