FoxPro to SQLite Migration.

Our DBConvert/DBSynch for FoxPro and SQLite migration solution provides an efficient and intuitive way to convert and sync data from obsolete MS FoxPro databases to SQLite databases and conversely. Our software supports MS Visual FoxPro databases (.dbc) as well as MS Visual FoxPro free tables (.dbf). You can even conveniently setup a folder with multiple .dbf files as a source.

Microsoft stopped supporting FoxPro in the early 2015 so any business relies on a FoxPro database has to choose an alternative database engines to which to move their business critical data. SQLite is a good replacement for any small FoxPro database.

If your old FoxPro database is contains large volumes of data you can choose from other options including Microsoft SQL Server or MySQL.

Finally, cross database synchronization between FoxPro and SQLite would be helpful to automate transitional migration tasks.

NOTE: FoxPro General datatype is not supported.

Use DBConvert / DBSync software GUI application to configure parameters for starting a migration process.

In general, the following 4 steps are required to perform conversion or synchronization

  1. Choose Source Database.
  2. Choose Destination Database.
  3. Custoimzation and configuration.
  4. Execution.

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

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

Command line mode

Previously saved sessions can be passed as parameters to Command-Line DBConvert Client. A session keeps source/ target DB connection settings and 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.
