SQL Server to FoxPro Migration.

Our DBConvert/ DBSync software helps you to convert and synchronize your databases from Microsoft SQL Server to MS Visual FoxPro databases (*.DBC) or MS Visual FoxPro free tables (*.DBF). It is both easy to handle and extremely fast and efficient for databases manipulations.

It takes about 6 minutes to migrate 1 million records from MS SQL Server to FoxPro.

Microsoft SQL Server is far superior to MS FoxPro in terms of performance and stability, security and many other critical business features of RDBMSs. Microsoft recommends SQL Server as an alternative to the defunct FoxPro applications.

Still, there are sometimes specific situations where it is much simpler and cost effective to stick with Visual FoxPro applications. New enterprise-level applications based on Microsoft technologies use MS SQL as the data storage layer. Our database conversion and synchronization applications help to migrate data smoothly and fast in heterogeneous environments.

You can choose to transfer the entire database or specify a subset of tables for migration, duplication or synchronization by specifying WHERE conditions using the integrated data filters.

You can map source table columns to matching destination fields before conversion or our program will do that automatically by choosing the closest data types.

You configure settings with our intuitive scheduler in order to run the conversion and synchronization processes at the most convenient time for you.

NOTE: FoxPro General datatype is not supported.

GUI Application.

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\foxpro2mssqlPro\foxpro2mssqlPro_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.

Requirements

  • Necessary privileges to write into database on the target SQL Server (this requirement is optional as there is an option to overcome the restrictions using dump file)
  • MS Visual FoxPro version 9.0 and early, e.g. FoxPro 2.6
