Access to FoxPro conversion and synchronization.

Convert and Sync Data between Access and DBF Formats.

DBConvert/DBSync for MS Access and MS FoxPro is a reliable two-way database migration software that supports the conversion and synchronization of Microsoft Access (.mdb or .accdb files) to both MS FoxPro (.DBC) and FoxPro free tables (.DBF). Additionally, data can be saved into an MS Visual FoxPro Program (*.prg).

Convert Data from Access to DBF.

Our data conversion tool simplifies the process of migrating data from Microsoft Access to the DBF format. With just a few clicks, you can effortlessly transfer tables, records, and other data objects from Access to DBF. The software ensures that your data remains intact and accurately converted, preserving the integrity of your information.

Key Features:

  1. Easy-to-use Interface: Our software boasts a user-friendly interface that makes the conversion process intuitive and straightforward, even for non-technical users.
  2. Customizable Mapping: You can define mapping rules to match fields and data types between Access and DBF, ensuring accurate data conversion.
  3. Preserves Data Integrity: The software ensures that all data relationships, constraints, and formatting are preserved during the conversion, maintaining the accuracy and integrity of your information.

Sync Data between Access and DBF.

Keeping data synchronized between Access and DBF databases is essential for maintaining data consistency across different platforms. Our synchronization tool enables bidirectional data synchronization, ensuring that changes made in one database are reflected in the other.

Key Features:

  • Automated Synchronization: Schedule automated synchronization tasks to run at specific intervals, eliminating the need for manual intervention and ensuring data consistency.
  • Conflict Resolution: The tool intelligently detects and resolves conflicts that may arise during the synchronization process, maintaining data integrity and minimizing data inconsistencies.
  • Detailed Logs and Reports: Comprehensive logs and reports provide valuable insights into the synchronization process, making it easier to track changes, troubleshoot issues, and maintain an audit trail.

Whether you need to migrate data between Access and DBF, including MS FoxPro, dBase, FoxBase, or Clipper, or keep both source and destination databases synchronized, our software offers a reliable and user-friendly approach.

Supported databases:
  • Microsoft Access
  • *.DBF
  • *.DBC
  • Microsoft FoxPro free tables
  • FoxPro database
  • dBase
  • Clipper
  • XBase

Using Access to FoxPro conversion and synchronization tools.

When launching the DBConvert or DBSync application in GUI mode, it seamlessly guides you through the steps to initiate database migration or synchronization:

1. Connect to Access source database.

Specify the username/password and host/port parameters if your source database requires login credentials.

Connect to Access source database from DBConvert

2. Connect to FoxPro destination database.

Specify parameters for the destination database similar to the source, defining connection settings and username/password pairs.

Connect to FoxPro target database from DBConvert

NOTE #1: Each DBConvert or DBSync tool's name comprises two different databases, enabling any specified database to operate as the source or destination. Furthermore, the same type of database can function as both the source and destination.

NOTE #2: Connections to cloud databases (e.g., Amazon RDS, Google Cloud, or Azure SQL) aren't explicitly specified in the user interface but use the same settings as traditional on-premises databases.

NOTE #3: Connections to source and target databases remain active until you close the DBConvert/DBSync application or reopen new connections.

Refer to our documentation for specific source/ destination configurations for different databases.

3. Configure database migration options.

Specify the tables, fields, indices, and views you want to transfer to the FoxPro destination database by checking/unchecking the corresponding boxes.

Customize general database/ tables settings. Or configure specific table , field, index object individually when migrating data.

Explore our articles in the user's manual about Configuring database migration options. for detailed information.

The screenshot below summarizes the general features available in DBConvert software.

4. Detection of potential database migration issues. Errors and Warnings

The database enforces certain relations on the data, and on the customization step, an intelligent error checker verifies all possible data integrity and referential integrity issues. It highlights any problems before migration starts.

By default, DBConvert attempts to automatically map the database types of the source Access database to the closest equivalent of the target FoxPro database types. However, you can manually change the data types for the entire database globally using the "Global mapping" or individually for each field.

Explore the Intelligent error checker for more information. on errors and warnings

5. Execution. The final stage of data migration.

Initiate the conversion or synchronization process after configuring source and destination databases in the previous steps.

Click the "Commit" button to start conversion. Here, you can also monitor the migration/synchronization process.

Optionally save connection settings and configuration parameters into the session file to schedule the launching of sync or migration jobs regularly.

Command line mode

Pass previously saved sessions as parameters to the Command-Line DBConvert Client. A session retains Access source and FoxPro target database connection settings with other specified options.

Example:

C:\Program Files\DBConvert\access2foxproPro\access2foxproPro_Cons.exe /Session:"Session_Name"

NOTE: First, run the software in GUI mode to create a session file with initial parameters.

Built-in scheduler.

Our applications include a built-in scheduler to run database migration and sync jobs at specified times. Set the scheduled date and time to execute job sessions automatically.
