When I convert .dbf tables, they are not displayed/displayed partially at the customization stage.

Such a situation usually happens due to the way the tables(.dbf files) were created. If you want your .dbf tables to be converted easily they must be free, not constrained within a database.

Note: Regarding this problem please check the following details:

- if you choose directory with .dbf files and tables do not appear on Customization stage :

  1. tables do not belong to FoxPro environment
  2. other applications occupy the tables
  3. there is no additional files belong to the tables, for example files needed for memo fields in the table

- if you choose .dbc file as a source for conversion and tables do not appear on Customization stage:

  1. the 'lost' tables are not included into dbc file properly

    I would appreciate some ideas on how to correct any of these problems. I have a single FoxPro table that I need to dump to SQL, and it doesn't show up. I am reading what is above, but I don't know what to do about it.

    Hello James,

    - please make sure that MS FoxPro Program itself and all programs related to MS FoxPro should be closed/disconnected.

    -if you have a dbc file in this directory, you will need to make this table free from dbc file

    You can also send us your source file for analyzing in our lab.
