Hello All.

I have a .dbf file that contains 9 columns, one of which contians zip codes.  I am unable to join this table to the zip code shapefile from the Census.  When I choose "Join Data", I select "Join attributes from a table", then (1) I choose the zip code column from the census file, then (2) I choose the .dbf table, but (3) the drop down for choosing a "field in the table to base the join on" is blank.  It's most likely something wrong with my data, but I'm not sure what it could be.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  I have attached a copy of the .dbf file.  Please let me know if additional information is required.

Thanks in advance for the help.
