Import XLSX files to DBF base.
This dialog window imports data from an Excel file. With "Import data into current (opened) database file" option, the DBFView will insert records from xlsx file you selected into current dbf file. In this case the number of fields and field types should be the same as opened dbase file.
If "Import data into another DBF file" is checked, the program will create a new dbf file based on selected Excel xlsx file.
When default locale of your computer is something different from than English, DBFView returns incorrect date value. You are to change your default locale to US to avoid this problem or change the format of date cells to the default type (03/25/2008).
When you export .xlsx files you should take into consideration some limitations:
1. Rules of the columns names.
- Columns names should be written down one after another (beginning with the cell A1).
- Empty names of the columns are not supported (columns laying to the left are only imported).
- Columns names longer than 8 symbols are truncated up to 8 symbols.
2. Rules of the columns type definition.
The columns type is defined according to the type of the data entered into the second row, i.e. if the integer value is written in the second row that column will be of the integer type.

I don't do a lot of work with databases, but in connection with a research project I got hold of a CD with a 30-meg DBF file on it - 74,624 records, 23 fields, total of field widths 414 characters. At first I tried copying the file to the hard drive and reading it with Quattro Pro. This was possible, but it was slow, and pushed the program to an intolerable number of illegal errors leading to shutdown. So I went on the net and searched for DBF readers, hit apycom.com pretty soon, read the home page and decided DBFView sounded useful and inexpensive, downloaded it, and have found it to be very serviceable. The program was easy to install, reads quickly from the CD-ROM drive, finds individual records reliably and quickly enough for my purposes, and in general seems like a tremendous bargain.

We have installed Access 2000, and the export data from access to dBase destructs actually all file structures (thank you, guys from MS!) of the DBase files in a manner that dBase doesn't recognize them as dBase files... I have to support an old Clipper/dBase based program. I was looking for a documentation tool for dBase because we still use a Clipper compiled programm that uses dBase files. Then I found Your program and thought i could see the structures of the files: I can! Hey fine! I also can see the contents of the files even if the Access derived files have a mistake in the second byte (at least) of the exported files. And I can modify the contents of the fields. Even better!

We develop application software using any kind of DBF format file. The DBF files generated (FoxPro DBFCDX in windows format) are different from the equivalent FoxPro generated in DOS format: as a result of that the utilities I use to maintain the DBF files (mainly DBU of Clipper) are enable to manage all formats. I should have at least 3 versions of the same utility. For this matter I started a research on the web to find a more rational tool. I've downloaded several DBF managers very good products but they don't solve the compatibility problem. Only DBFView has the main feature I'm searching for : it recognizes the DBF format! And then the graphical interface of DBFView is very user friendly, agreeable to see, and the exe is very small.
