I'm just wanting to get some ideas on what approach people would take when faced with the same situation I am faced with at the moment.
We offer a software as a service solution to our clients; we use a MSSQL back end database. The majority of our clients previously used and old system written in Visual Fox Pro with a dbf database.
We would like to offer a facility which will import the data from the old VFP .dbf files into our MSSQL database. I would have to write some form of script or something of the like as the data stored in these old .dbf's is all over the place and will need to be manipulated to fit into our database; Also what would be the best approach to handling the auto generated ID of these dbf tables. I cannot just import then as they will cause conflicts with data already in the MSSQL database as well as import of other customers databases.
Any tip or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
