Convert Access to FoxPro.

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 you start DBConvert or DBSync application in GUI mode it guides you through several steps to set up the database migration or synchronization:

1. Connect to Access source database.

If a source database requires you to log in, you can specify a user name/ password and host/ port parameters.

Connect to Access source database from DBConvert

2. Connect to FoxPro destination database.

Specifying parameters for destination database looks like the same as for source. Usually, it consists of defining connection settings and username/password pairs.

Connect to FoxPro target database from DBConvert

NOTE #1: Every DBConvert or DBSync tool has two different databases in its name. That means any specified database from a pair can be set up as a source or destination. Besides, the same type of database may be set up both as a source or destination.

As an example, here is the list of possible migration directions with on-premises databases:

  • Access to FoxPro
  • FoxPro to Access
  • Access to Access
  • FoxPro to FoxPro

NOTE #2: Don't be confused by the fact that connections to cloud databases like Amazon RDS, Google Cloud, and Heroku are not explicitly specified in the configuration of a source or destination in the DBConvert / DBSync interface. To connect to Cloud database instances, use the same settings as you do for traditional on-premises databases.

NOTE #3: Your connections to source and target databases stay active until you close DBConvert/ DBSync application or reopen new connections on "source" and "destination" steps.

Read more about the specific source/ destination configurations for different databases.

3. Configure database migration options.

At the next step, you can specify precisely which tables, fields, indices, views you want to transfer to the FoxPro destination database. Just check/ uncheck the box in front of each database object you want to convert.

Customize general database/ tables settings. Or set up a particular table , field, index individually when migrating data from Access to FoxPro.

Check out our articles about Configure database migration options. for detailed information.

The screenshot below sums up general features available in DBConvert software solutions.

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

The database typically constrains certain relations on the data that cannot be violated. On the customization step, a smart error checker verifies all possible Data integrity and Referential integrity issues and highlights them, if any, before performing a migration.

By default, DBConvert tries 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.

Check out Smart error checker. Errors and Warnings for more information.

5. Execution. The final stage of data migration from Access to FoxPro

Once you configure source and destination databases for migration in the previous steps, you can start the actual conversion or synchronization process.

Click the "Commit" button to start conversion. Also, here, you can monitor the migtation/ 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

Previously saved sessions can be passed as parameters to Command-Line DBConvert Client. A session keeps 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, you have to run the software in GUI mode to create a session file with initial parameters.

Built-in scheduler.

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