Works is not the only app to have this problem. MS Excel 2000 also loads
with empty Events fields.. MS Access 2000 wants to know where the *.ndx or
*.mdx files are held but I can only see *.cdx ones (for timelines that I
have added - the "bundled" timelines don't have these).

I know little about dBase but from what I see in Explorer, it looks as if
the Event text is stored in the .DBT file that is associated with the .DBF
