Virtual Server users option

Those customers who use virtual server hosting probably do not have sufficient privileges to create new databases on the target MySQL server. For this case Intelligent Converters recommend the following approach:

  1. ask Virtual Server administrator to create blank database
  2. run DBF-to-MySQL and select this database as the conversion target
  3. select "Overwrite the entire database" when asked how to process existing MySQL database

After completing these steps the entire contents of source DBase/FoxPro/Clipper database will be imported into the destination MySQL database.

Customize table structure

Manual table structure customization can be accessed by double click on the correspoding table name in "Selected tables" list of "Step 4 of 6" wizard page. This will cause the following dialog box to appear:

To customize type mapping select the appropriate item in the listview on the left and specify new name, type and default value for the field using "Field info" group of controls. Please note that listview on the left contains column attributes of the original types mapping, new custom types and attributes will be displayed in "Field info" controls when the corresponding item is highlighted in the listview.

Export into MySQL dump file

DBF to MySQL database migration tool can also export data from FoxPro (DBF) files into a local MySQL script file, instead of transferring it to MySQL server directly. This approach may be used when the destination server does not allow remote connections. Also it gives experienced users more control over the conversion process as they can modify the script before loading it to MySQL server.
