I was using the sidecar files because most of my photos are in a proprietary 
raw format and I was unwilling to risk Digikam messing them up.

Thank you for your offer of help but I think I can extract the captions from 
the old database and then transfer to another product, even if I have to write 
it myself (I don't need anything complicated, just reliable).

Thanks again
