Convert SQLite to FoxPro.

SQLite to DBF Conversion and Data Synchronization.
Are you looking for a reliable solution to convert your SQLite database to DBF format or synchronize data between SQLite and DBF? Look no further! Our software products offer a seamless and efficient way to accomplish these tasks, ensuring smooth data transfer and synchronization.

Convert your data with DBConvert.

The DBConvert for FoxPro & SQLite tool simplifies migrating your SQLite database to the DBF format. Whether you need to convert single or multiple databases, our software handles it easily. With just a few clicks, you can transform your SQLite data into the DBF format, allowing you to integrate it into your existing DBF-based applications seamlessly.

Sync your databases with DBSync.

In addition to conversion, DBSync software facilitates data synchronization between SQLite and DBF. This feature enables you to keep both databases updated with the latest changes. By synchronizing data between the two formats, you ensure that any modifications made in SQLite are reflected accurately in your DBF database and vice versa.

Why use DBConvert software?

Various databases, including Visual FoxPro and dBase, have widely adopted the DBF format. Many organizations and developers choose to convert or sync their data from SQLite to DBF for several reasons:

  1. Compatibility: By converting or synchronizing SQLite data to DBF, you ensure compatibility with databases that rely on the DBF format, such as Visual FoxPro. This compatibility allows for seamless integration and sharing of data between different systems.
  2. Legacy System Integration: Some organizations still rely on legacy systems built around the DBF format. By converting or syncing data from SQLite to DBF, you can seamlessly integrate your SQLite data into these legacy systems, ensuring continuity and smooth operation.

Our software products provide a reliable and efficient solution for converting SQLite to DBF and synchronizing data between the two formats. Say goodbye to manual data transfers and enjoy a streamlined process that ensures your data remains accurate and up-to-date across platforms. Experience the benefits of seamless SQLite to DBF conversion and data synchronization with our intuitive and powerful software solutions.

Using SQLite 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 SQLite source database.

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

Connect to SQLite 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:

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

Execution step of DBConvert products

Read more about execution stage available options.

Command line mode

Previously saved sessions can be passed as parameters to Command-Line DBConvert Client. A session keeps SQLite source and FoxPro 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.
