FoxPro to SQLite conversion and synchronization.

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 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 FoxPro source database.

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

Connect to FoxPro source database from DBConvert

2. Connect to SQLite destination database.

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

Connect to SQLite 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 SQLite 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 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.

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

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.
