Convert Ingres to dBase

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 dBase compared to Ingres. 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:

  • bigint numeric(20)
  • boolean logical(1)
  • byte varbinary(10) (if version is 3)
  • byte varbinary(4) (if version is vfp)
  • byte var varbinary
  • decimal numeric
  • float double(8)
  • ingresdate date(8) (if version is 3)
  • ingresdate datetime(8) (if version is vfp)
  • long byte blob
  • long nvarchar text(10) (if version is 3)
  • long nvarchar text(4) (if version is vfp)
  • long varchar text(10) (if version is 3)
  • long varchar text(4) (if version is vfp)
  • money numeric(19,2)
  • nchar char
  • nvarchar char
  • real double(8)
  • smallint integer(4)
  • time char(5) (if version is 3)
  • time datetime(8) (if version is vfp)
  • timestamp date(8) (if version is 3)
  • timestamp datetime(8) (if version is vfp)
  • timestamp with time zone date(8) (if version is 3)
  • timestamp with time zone datetime(8) (if version is vfp)
  • tinyint integer(4)

Start the conversion

All source tables are selected for conversion by default. In case you only need some tables, simply deselect the ones you don't need - or deselect all, then select just the tables you do need. Click the Copy your database button to get started.



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.
