CSV to DBF Converter

CSV to DBF Converter allows you to convert your csv (comma-separated value) files to dbf format.
Generally, you can use any delimiter, such as TAB, semicolon etc. Besides, you can customize the output file, say select the output codepage, choose BlockSize in memo fields, etc.
The program supports dBase III, dBase IV, FoxPro, VFP and dBase Level 7 formats.
Since many programs can save data in CSV format then this programs can help you transfer these data to dBase or Foxpro files.

The first tab allows you to select source files. You can select for conversion one or several files.
Double-click on a file displays a Preview window.

If your files contain non-latin characters then you have to choose a correct charset.

Command line parameter:
-incharset="Cyrillic (Windows)"
In the command line you have to use an exact phrase.

The second tab allows you to select the output folder or file.
If you selected a folder or checked the option
[x] Create a separate file for each source file
then every source file(table) will be converted to a separate output file.

filename.csv >> filename.dbf
another.csv >> another.dbf

If you selected a file then a content of all source files will be converted to this file.

Command line parameters are:

-separate=1, -separate=0

Besides, you can define the program's behaviour what is necessary to do when an output file already exists.

Command line parameters are:

-files=overwriteOverwrite existing files
-files=useUse existing files (append to the end)
-files=skipSkip (do not convert a source file)
-files=uniqueCreate an unique name. example.dbf, example.1.dbf, example.2.dbf, ...
-files=askAsk for action for each file

The last tab allows you to customize the output file.
