DBF-to-MySQL is a program to migrate DBase/FoxPro/Clipper (*.dbf) databases to MySQL server. The program has high performance due to direct connection to source and destination databases (it does not use ODBC or any other middleware software). Command line support allows to script, automate and schedule the conversion process.
If you are using Virtual Server hosting you probably have no sufficient privileges to create new databases on the target MySQL server. For this case we recommend the following approach:
When you complete these steps, the entire contents of the source MS Access database will be imported into the specified MySQL database.
DBF-to-MySQL converter allows users to perform deferred conversion and get more control over the process. Following this way, the program stores the contents of the source database into a local dump file instead of moving it to MySQL server directly. The resulting file contains MySQL statements to create all tables and to fill them with the data. Click here to learn how to import dump file into MySQL database.
Manual table structure customization can be accessed by double click on the correspoding table name in "Selected tables" list of "Step 4 of 6" wizard page. This will cause the following dialog box to appear:
To customize type mapping select the appropriate item in the listview on the left and specify new name, type and default value for the field using "Field info" group of controls. Please note that listview on the left contains column attributes of the original types mapping, new custom types and attributes will be displayed in "Field info" controls when the corresponding item is highlighted in the listview.
Once you stored conversion settings into profile you can run the program in Quick Launch mode. Just launch Windows Explorer and double-click on the profile description (.d2s) file with left mouse button. This will cause DBF-to-MySQL wizard to launch conversion loading the necessary settings from the specified profile. Then you will be taken right to the screen with progress of conversion without entering all conversion settings.
Still not sure the program fits your needs? Try free demo version with limited features. It will allow you to convert only five records for each database table. Test the quality of the demo and come back to place an order if satisfied with the results.
