Virtual Server users option

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:

  1. ask your Virtual Server administrator to create blank database for you
  2. run DBF to MySQL converter and select this database as the conversion target
  3. click "Yes" when you will be asked if you'd like to overwrite existing MySQL database

When you complete these steps, the entire contents of the source MS Access database will be imported into the specified MySQL database.

MySQL dump file

DBF to MySQL converter allows users to export FoxPro database into a local script 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 MySQL dump file into the database.

Customize table structure

Manual table structure customization can be accessed by double click on the corresponding 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.

Quick Launch

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.
