DBF Converter is a conversion program. It has a familiar Wizard-like interface but can also be used as a command-line utility for batch file processing. DBF Converter supports all the modern data interchange formats, such as Excel, XML, CSV, TXT, HTML, RTF, and PRG. You can even convert your DBF table into a SQL script. DBF Converter builds a sample data record allowing you to build filtering rules.
Allows easy automation of data movement between common .CSV output and legacy .DBF formats.
Became more relevant once MS Excel gave up support for .DBF format.
Thin install, fast operation.
Effective GUI to assist with structure modification and basic data management tasks.
Command-line documentation and examples could use some work. However, this is offset by responsive support, including the ability to add specific functionality.
I am a data migration specialist and I work with disparate formats. In many cases clients want to interface new core systems without having rip and replace functioning, but old, peripheral applications. The HiBase DBF viewer/converter, along with their Excel and CSV conversion products, have been part of my toolset for nearly fifteen years, and I regularly recommend them as part of client solutions.
