dbf file in FoxPro 9.0

Postby kelvinfrost » 27 Jan 2016, 02:48

Good time of day to all,
Help, who can, cannot open a file with the extension dbf.
Maybe there is a program for the treatment?
Thank you.

DBF is a database file. There are several Windows based DBF viewers out there. For Linux, there's dbfdump command line tool. a dbf2mysql tool which converts the file into SQL format. There's also a GTK DBF viewer, which can be install in both linux and Windows.

Another one is called cdbf
Don't confuse me with your reasonableness.

You may use guide below...

OR topics which were collected from Internet space ... rt-library

Ultimate solution is directed to severe corruption in .dbf files Recovery Toolbox for DBF

It is not necessary to rebuild a corrupt database. All corrupt databases can fixed in less than one minute.

The solution is:

Open database to main screen

Copy the database but only one record(just pick a not recent record number at random; include "all", I usually name this database "FixMMDD" (( month Day))

Open original database to mainscreen and append the FIXMMDD.dbf.

You're done.

Occassionally you may have to update indexes. Very rarely are any records lost and when it happens those few records are clearly garbled.

I've been doing this for three years with no problems.

If you have fields that increment you'll have to adjust that for your last valid value.
