Convert MySQL 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.

MySQL is also known as MyISAM, InnoDB (related files: frm, myd, myi).

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 MySQL. 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)
  • bigint unsigned numeric(20)
  • binary varbinary(10) (if version is 3)
  • binary varbinary(4) (if version is vfp)
  • bit logical(1)
  • datetime date(8) (if version is 3)
  • decimal numeric
  • enum char(255)
  • float double(8)
  • geography text(10)
  • geometry text(10)
  • int integer
  • int unsigned integer(4)
  • json text(10) (if version is 3)
  • json text(4) (if version is vfp)
  • longblob varbinary(10) (if version is 3)
  • longblob varbinary(4) (if version is vfp)
  • longtext text(10) (if version is 3)
  • longtext text(4) (if version is vfp)
  • mediumblob varbinary(10) (if version is 3)
  • mediumblob varbinary(4) (if version is vfp)
  • mediumint integer(4)
  • mediumint unsigned integer(4)
  • mediumtext text(10) (if version is 3)
  • mediumtext text(4) (if version is vfp)
  • nchar char
  • nvarchar char
  • set char(255)
  • smallint integer(4)
  • smallint unsigned 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)
  • tinyblob varbinary(10) (if version is 3)
  • tinyblob varbinary(4) (if version is vfp)
  • tinyint integer(4)
  • tinyint unsigned integer(4)
  • tinytext text(10) (if version is 3)
  • tinytext text(4) (if version is vfp)
  • varchar char
  • year integer(4)

Full Convert migration in 4 easy steps

MySQL connection


We will choose MySQL from the source database engines list. As our MySQL server is on the local machine and we have full privileges, we will simply choose a database from the dropdown menu.



We will choose dBase and FoxPro (DBF) from the list of available database formats. Both dBase and FoxPro use DBF file format for their database table files.

Just type-in the folder containing your dBase database tables, or click the ellipsis button on the right and Full Convert will display Browse for Folder dialog.

dBase connection

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.
