Hi there,

I previously asked a question about how to import a dbase table to a sqlserver 2005 table.  I know you can use SSIS to import data in sql server, but I can't seem to find the ODBC driver for the DBASE IV database...so I can't realy import it right now.

Anyone have a detailled solution for this one?

Thanks in advance!

ODBC driver for Visual FoxPro is here http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/vfoxpro/bb190233.aspx
It should be sufficient for dBase IV if it has no memo fields (means just .DBF file not .DBT).

Once you have installed the Visual FoxPro driver, use the
.NET Framework Data Provider for ODBC
and then refer to your FoxPro ODBC DSN

I believe he wishes to use SSIS, and he is pushing data into SQL Server, so that utility may not be so helpful.

I would say this is solved already. Some summary information follows:

dBase files are supported by following drivers:
Microsoft dBase Driver
Microsoft Access dBASE Driver
Microsoft dBase VFP Driver
Microsoft FoxPro VFP Driver
Microsoft FoxPro Driver
Microsoft Visual FoxPro Driver

Allmost all above drivers are just different names for the following DLLs:
VFPODBC.DLL, ODBCJT32.DLL

Note: dBase tables with compound MDX index files have problems sometimes.

You can export your dbf file to csv format, and csv file can be easily loaded into sql table. If you have problem in exporting using dbase/foxpro, open your dbf in excel and use saveas csv or xml.
try to work on this sol.
