Dear Louise,

If you already have a conversion program for Mathematica it shouldn't
be too difficult to convert the database.

>From its Wikipedia lemma the Chinese lunar calendar seems rather
complicated. The calender package that comes with Mathematica 7 only
handles Gregorian, Julian, Islamic, and Jewish calendars.

Unless you provided specifics on the program you have, it will be
pretty hard to determine what precisely it can do. Mathematica has
powerful import and export functions and should be able to handle that
part of the process.

If you are going to try it and encounter any difficulties, just get
back here and you'll get help.

possible? And when I will use this program, does it allows me to import the=
 dataset, process the dates, and then export it back?
