Foxpro | Import table to Excel Error

Tried to import a foxpro table to an excel file but the following errors loaded…


excel_dbf_format_poblem

Then the next error also loaded…

excel_dbf_format_poblem_2

The Solution was to convert the Foxpro table to version 2.0 by using the following command in Visual Foxpro:

COPY TO C:\pathname\dbfname.dbf TYPE FOX2X

Another important thing is that the name of the file must be less than 8 characters or else it still won’t work!

Happy Exporting 😉
