Export SQL Svr '05 Table To FoxPro DBF

Dec 14, 2007

Does anyone know how I can, using SQL and/or T-SQL syntax (although I could do a CLR in C# too..), export a SQL table from SQL Server 2005 to a new Visual FoxPro 9 DBF (table)? The DBF would need to be created on the fly too because this will have to basically be able to export any SQL table...

Thanks ahead of time for any and all assistance...

Sql To FoxPro Export

May 24, 2006

I have 2 packages, one to import data from Foxpro to Sql and another to send the data back from Sql to FoxPro.

The time it takes to execute the package that moves 2 million rows of data from FoxPro to Sql takes about 18 to 25 mins. Not bad. However, moving approximately the same number of rows from Sql back to FoxPro takes about 8 hrs. Not acceptable. I have tried several things with no luck.

Any advice would be appreciated.

I've got about 6000 tables in foxpro 3.0 and a database in sql srv 2000.

now i've to convert the data of these 6000 tables into the database. the problem is that i have to convert all the tables seperatly!

is there a tool where i can convert these tables automatically?

i know it can with DTS, but the 6000 tables are divided over 1400 directories. So with DTS i can't convert them automatically.

does anyone know a solution?

FoxPro Triggers Call FoxPro Stored Proc Calls SQL Server Stored Procedure

Mar 10, 2005

I didn't want to maintain similar/identical tables in a legacy FoxPro system and another system with SQL Server back end. Both systems are active, but some tables are shared.

Initially I was going to use a Linked Server to the FoxPro to pull the FP data when needed. This works. But, I've come up with what I believe is a better solution. Keep in mind that these tables are largely static - occassional changes, edits.

I will do a 1 time DTS from FP into SQL Server tables.

I then create INSERT and UPDATE triggers within FoxPro.

These triggers fire a stored procedure in FoxPro that establishes a connection to the SQL Server and fire the appropriate stored procedure on SQL Server to CREATE and/or UPDATE the corresponding table there.

In the end - the tables are local to both apps.

If the UPDATES or TRIGGERS fail I write to an error log - and in that rare case - I can manually fix. I could set it up to email me from within FoxPro as well if needed.

Here's the FoxPro and SQL Server code for reference for the Record Insert:

FOXPRO employee.dbf InsertTrigger:
employee_insert_trigger(VAL(Employee.ep_pk),Employ ee.fname,Employee.lname,Employee.email,Employee.us er_login,Employee.phone)

FOXPRO corresponding Stored Procedure:
PARAMETERS wepk,wefname,welname,weemail,WEUSERID,WEPHONE

nhandle=SQLCONNECT('SS_PDITHP3','userid','password ')

IF nhandle<0
IF !USED("errorlog")
USE tisdata!errorlog IN SELECT(1)

SELECT errorlog
INSERT INTO errorlog (date, time, program,source,user) ;
values (DATE(), TIME(), 'EMPLOYEE_INSERT_TRIGGER','nhandle<0 PARAMS: '+STR(wepk)+wefname+welname+weemail+WEUSERID+WEPHO NE,GETENV("username"))

IF m.errclose
USE IN errorlog

nquery="exec ewo_sp_insertNewEmployee @WEPK ="+STR(wepk)+",@WEFNAME ='"+wefname+"',@WELNAME ='"+welname+"',@WEEMAIL ='"+weemail+"',@WEUSERID ='"+weuserid+"',@WEPHONE='"+wephone+"',@RETCODE =0"


IF nSucc<0
IF !USED("errorlog")
USE tisdata!errorlog IN SELECT(1)

SELECT errorlog
INSERT INTO errorlog (date, time, program,source,user) ;
values (DATE(), TIME(), 'EMPLOYEE_INSERT_TRIGGER','nSucc<0 PARAMS: '+STR(wepk)+wefname+welname+weemail+WEUSERID+WEPHO NE,GETENV("username"))

IF m.errclose
USE IN errorlog


SQL SERVER Stored Procedure called from FOXPRO Stored Procedure
CREATE procedure ewo_sp_insertNewEmployee (
@WEPK int,
@WEFNAME char(20),
@WELNAME char(20),
@WEEMAIL char(50),
@WEUSERID char(15),
@WEPHONE char(25),


insert into WO_EMP (


IF @@ERROR <> 0

return @RETCODE

I know that the DTS Wizard is supposed to be able to handle heterognous
data imports but I can't get it to work with a free FoxPro table. I have to export to a text file and then import from the text file and spend an hour renaming columns and farting around with datatypes.


I don't fully understand some of the questions the DTS Wizard is asking. Can anybody give me a blow by blow account before I ring the Samaritans?

Thank you and Happy Christmas - it may be my last if I can't speed up these imports. Either I'll jump under a bus or my boss will make mince pies out of me.

Error Exporting FoxPro 2.5 DOS Table To SQL Server

Mar 1, 2006

Using the Import/Export Data Wizard, I'm trying to export a FoxPro 2.5 DOS (as dBase III) table of 15,000 records to SQL Server 2000. I keep getting this error message:
Insert Error, Column 32 ('PROG_START',DBTYPE_DBTIMESTAMP), Status 6: Data Overflow.
Invalid character value for cast specification.

I have SQL Server create the table each time I run the wizard. The new table allows NULLS in this column and I made sure to overwrite the empty date fields in the FoxPro table with blanks to make sure it would result in NULL. Originally SQL Server tried to put this as SMALL DATETIME, but when I got the message earlier, I changed it to DATETIME.

Any suggestions?

Linked Server For Visual Foxpro (DBF) Table

Jul 13, 2015

I'm running SQL Server 2008 (x64) version.

How can i create a linked server for Microsoft Visual Foxpro databases ?

I'm using Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0 driver.

I success create a linked server, and can browse all tables from linked server connections, but why when query data using

SELECT * FROM OPENQUERY(PIP_TEST,'select * from tbctrl')

It getting error message

Cannot process the object "select * from tbctrl". The OLE DB provider "Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0" for linked server "pip_test" indicates that either the object has no columns or the current user does not have permissions on that object.

FoxPro Vs. SQL

Nov 1, 2006

Hello everyone,My company uses a FoxPro database right now as an interfaceand a database. For our situation, I have come to the conclusion thatit would be a better choice for us to move to an SQL server of somesort. I have been given the task of overseeing the overhaul on theprogram. I am paranoid about security and uptime, and so is the CEO andthere is more and more demand for the company to get on the interactiveinternet. I'd like our clients to be able to submit data to ourdatabase and pull data from it (only certain data of course). My ideais to convert the FP tables to and SQL server and write an internalapplication(or web-based - advantages? I dunno) for the interface. Forthe internet side of things, my idea is to have seperate web database(SQL) that will put information from web clients. Through the internalinterface, internal users would then be able to pull data from the webdatabase to the internal SQL. And through the internet (authenticatedof course), the web users would pull data though the web database, whopulls information from the internal SQL database. Would someone pleasetear this idea apart w/ advantages and disadvantages. Also, if this isthe best route, tell me how I can sell this idea to my boss. What's sogood about using SQL vs. FP over the internet? What about internally?What about security? Cost is going to place a big role on the what theCEO decides, unless I can sell him otherwise. Should I tell him that weshouldn't do it now and save some money to do it right? Or what? Somehelp please. Thanks.Alex

Table Data Export To .sql File.

Nov 16, 2006

Rookie qustion here quys,
Using SQL Sever 2005 Express and Visual Web Devoloper Express.
I'm trying to get data from my local SQL sever database to my shared hosting database. SImple enough but...
1.) GoDaddy does not allow remote connections to the DB server
2.) With GoDaddy you can't just upload an .MDF file to your remote directory and script a connection string. You have to reference the DB server. Can't upload DB file to DB server.
As a work around, I've seen several .sql files that have all the T-SQL that will create a database and tables then insert the data. I've google'd extensively and searched several forums with no luck as to how to export my local data to file. I could then copy and paste into an online utility GoDaddys has to insert the data.
Is there a relatively easy way to export table data to a .sql file??? When I try using SQL Server Management Studio Express and "Scipt Table As> Insert To> File", It just gives me something like the following...
INSERT INTO [pubs].[dbo].[authors]           ([au_id]           ,[au_lname]           ,[au_fname]           ,[phone]           ,[address]           ,[city]           ,[state]           ,[zip]           ,[contract])     VALUES           (<au_id, id,>           ,<au_lname, varchar(40),>           ,<au_fname, varchar(20),>           ,<phone, char(12),>           ,<address, varchar(40),>           ,<city, varchar(20),>           ,<state, char(2),>           ,<zip, char(5),>           ,<contract, bit,>)
Plenty of data in this table, no data in script   ???
Can SQL Server Management Studio Express do what I wanting to do? If not, any suggestions? Know of a better hosing company?

T-SQL (SS2K8) :: XML Export From A Denormalized Table

Aug 12, 2015

I have a de-normalized table that I need to export to XML using For XML, but put all of the related rows under the same node.The table is alot more complicated than the example below, but for proof of concept purposes, i'll keep it really simple:

Campaign, Price
C1, 4.00
C1, 6.00
C1, 10.00
C2, 1.00
C2, 13.00
C3, 20.00

If I have a table of campaigns and prices, I would like to output it as XML like the following:

<Campaign name="C1">
<Price value="4.00"></Price>
<Price value="6.00"></Price>
<Price value="10.00"></Price>
<Campaign name="C2">
<Price value="1.00"></Price>

The default behaviour gives me this:

<Campaign name="C1" price="4.00"/>
<Campaign name="C1" price="6.00"/>
<Campaign name="C1" price="10.00"/>

Is there an existing option that deals with this automatically, or do I essentially need to do a group by to output the campaign element, and then union an ungrouped select to output the price element?
