Convert dBase to SQL Server Express LocalDB

Full Convert is designed for ease of use and reliability to make sure you get your job done as quickly and as simply as possible.

Making migration easy for you

Full Convert is a fully self-tuning software. Your migration will work as expected without you needing to adjust anything.

Data types are different in SQL Server Express LocalDB compared to dBase. We automatically adjust them as we copy the tables so you don't have to worry about it. You can adjust the mapping rules if you wish to change the following defaults:

  • autoincrement bigint
  • binary varbinary(max) (if precision > 8000)
  • blob varbinary(max)
  • char varchar(max) (if precision > 8000)
  • currency decimal(19,2)
  • datetime datetime2 (if version at least 10)
  • double float(53)
  • integer int
  • logical bit
  • numeric decimal
  • text varchar(max)
  • timestamp datetime2 (if version at least 10)
  • timestamp datetime (if version earlier than 10)
  • varbinary varbinary(max) (if precision > 8000)

Conversion

Conversion is highly-optimized to run as fast as possible, yet provides top-notch reliability. Huge tables are converted in small chunks at a time, preserving memory and ensuring that your computer stays fast and responsive.
