Very, Very simple.  Paradox has built in support for dBase tables.  As a matter of fact, you don't even have to convert to Paradox tables if you don't want to, Paradox recognizes most dBase table level features (except for the indexing features). In any case, to convert a dBase table to a Paradox table, simply Choose, Utilities, Copy, select the table you want to copy, then change the .DBF extension to .DB.  Paradox automatically converts the DBASE field types to their corresponding Paradox field types.

Any questions, please ask.  

Good Luck!!!
