A DB editor
Is there a good editor, wich I can use to edit the db files (like links.db)?

Because I can't save the file in excel with the | between the words.

There is a way to use Excel to output the db files. I used the Concatenate function to merge the cells into one pipe-deliminated cell. Like this:


Excel offers a whole bunch of data manipulation tools that the other editors don't have, but you'll still need a good editor (UltraEdit-32 is a great one) to output the db to. Oh, and make sure you have the properties in the cells set to "text", or the date will not merge properly.
