There is a tool to export old Data.fs to XLS available as bazaar checkout:

$ sudo apt-get install bzr
$ bzr branch lp:~schooltool-owners/schooltool/database_exporter

You may see this message (just ignore it, you want to just *read* from Launchpad, not *write*):
You have not informed bzr of your Launchpad ID, and you must do this to
write to Launchpad or access private data. See "bzr help launchpad-login".

A folder database_exporter should be created:
$ cd database_exporter

Then follow instructions in README.txt.

The tool was tested in Ubuntu Karmic and Lucid (and will not work in very old Ubuntu releases). It is should be sufficient for getting the old data out without following the normal upgrade path.
