Convert FoxPro to SQLite.

DBF to SQLite Conversion and Data Synchronization
Efficiently convert your DBF files, including various formats such as dBASE, Visual FoxPro, and Clipper, to SQLite databases and easily keep your data in sync. Our software supports MS Visual FoxPro databases (.dbc) as well as MS Visual FoxPro free tables (.dbf).

Streamlined Conversion with DBConvert.

While DBF files have been widely used in the past, their usage has become less prevalent over time. By converting your DBF files to SQLite, you future-proof your data by adopting a modern and widely supported database format. SQLite enjoys extensive community support and regular updates, ensuring long-term compatibility and maintenance.

Experience a fluid and effortless conversion process from various DBF formats to SQLite, ensuring compatibility and accurate data mapping. Migrating your DBF files into SQLite databases, opening up new data management and analysis possibilities, regardless of the format.

Seamless Data Synchronization with DBSync.

The ability to synchronize data between DBF (Visual FoxPro) and SQLite databases is valuable for collaborative environments and distributed systems. Keeping your data in sync ensures that all users can access the most up-to-date information, regardless of whether they are working with DBF or SQLite databases. Eliminate the need for manual updates and streamline your data workflows, saving valuable time and effort.

Advanced Mapping Options.

Customize the conversion and synchronization process according to your unique requirements. Our software offers advanced mapping options, allowing you to define how data is transformed and synchronized between DBF and SQLite. Tailor the process to suit the specific format you're working with and ensure smooth integration between different formats.

Intuitive Interface

Our user-friendly interface makes navigating and operating the software simple. Spend less time learning complex processes and more time focusing on your data analysis.

Efficiency and Performance.

Experience fast and efficient conversion and synchronization processes. Our software is optimized for speed and performance, allowing you to handle large datasets without compromising accuracy or efficiency. Transform your data quickly and reliably, keeping your operations running smoothly.

Unlock the potential of your data by converting various DBF formats to SQLite and synchronizing your databases effortlessly. Say goodbye to tedious manual tasks and embrace a more efficient and automated approach. Get started today and experience the power of smooth database conversion and data synchronization across different formats.

Using FoxPro to SQLite 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 FoxPro source database.

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

Connect to FoxPro source database from DBConvert

2. Connect to SQLite 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 SQLite 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:

  • FoxPro to SQLite
  • SQLite to FoxPro
  • FoxPro to FoxPro
  • SQLite to SQLite

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 SQLite 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 FoxPro to SQLite.

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 FoxPro database to the closest equivalent of the target SQLite 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 FoxPro to SQLite

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 FoxPro source and SQLite target database connection settings with other specified options.

Example: C:\Program Files\DBConvert\foxpro2sqlitePro\foxpro2sqlitePro_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.
