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 am doing support work in the field on a software system written with Visual FoxPro. Only the runtime is delivered to the end user. I have both Microsoft Access and Microsoft FoxPro on my system but when I am trouble shooting a site, I connect into their Lan with my laptop. It is time consuming to use these other programs to look at or modify .DBF files on the users system. To do this, I have to set up linkages from the IDE's for each file I want to look at. When I am done, I need to tear these linkages back down because they will no longer exist once I unplug my laptop from their network. I wanted a program that would allow me to quickly scan through a number of .DBF files and if needed make changes with a minimum of overhead work. I searched download.com for programs that would serve this purpose. Your program seemed to be a good fit. I downloaded it and a couple of others, worked with each and when I decided I would continue using yours, registered it.

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.

I found DBFView after a lengthy search on the net. I was looking for an interface that could provide a view, update, and edit interface for a large database that could reside on an internet drive (like X-Drive), where I and co-workers out of state could access and quickly update our numbers (basically job/data tracking for telecommuters). The company does photo-editing (school, corporate, restorative work) utilizing high-speed internet, waveform compression, and some good computer artists. Maybe 5000 negative scans per year.
Anyway, nobody wanted to install full-blown database programs, sql server or the like, the company is not that big, nor is the data itself considered critical. So for this type of user, your interface provides clean, quick, simple, no syntax required, put the data in and go. Others I looked at tried to do the same but usually forget the "people element", and I don't have time to learn sql syntax and help them complete their programs. (Incidently, I used to have a lot of fun programming DBase II and III, then I saw Access and cried).
