Two conversion scenarios
DBF to MySQL gives you the possibility to choose between two conversion options, namely move data to MySQL server directly or store the information in a dump file.
If you opt for a direct saving mode to MySQL, the application lets you select the access mode (local or remote), set up authentication parameters (username and password), as well as configure remote connections by providing details about the host (network name or IP address) and port number.
In case you want to export data to a dump file, you are allowed to pick the MySQL server version (new: 4.1 or higher or old: before 4.1), select the line breaks (MS Windows or Unix style), and insert ‘create database’ and ‘create table’ statements, as well as comments.
You are required to provide the source folder (DBF database directory) and destination directory where the dump file is stored. In addition, you can make the utility convert only table definitions, skip deleted records from the conversion process, convert logical values, and pick the encoding type.
Last but not least, you are empowered to select the DBF files that you want to convert to MySQL format and export DBF data to new database or overwrite the contents of an existing MySQL database.
