MS Office 2013 xls-dbf (dbase IV) conversion

YES I KNOW this is more of an MS OFFICE Forum question but I cannot access their forum at work right now and a significant amount of my work does rely on dbf format files. 

 

My office has just switched to MS Office 2013 and neither MS Excel or MS Access support dbf (dbase IV) format.  I am SOL unless I get an add on.   I even used to be able to convert xls files in MS Access (even with Field Does Not Fit in Record error message) but can't even do that now.

 

Has anyone run into this same problem?   What are my options?

 

Will send an xls file if you think you have a real solution.

 

Thanks for understanding.
