If your dBase database showing it’s age? Can’t run dBase on Windows 7 or Windows 10? Having trouble finding someone to help you maintain the database? Consider moving your dBase database to Microsoft Access!
Why Access may be your best option
Access is uniquely poised to take your dBase system and turbo charge it for a much better user experience. Moving data from dBase to Access can be quite challenging since you will need to redo all the forms, queries, reports and code. It can be lots of work if you have a very complex dBase database.
Use these techniques to convert your dBase to Access
- First, learn how to create Access tables, forms, queries and reports, since you will need to recreate all of your dBase objects in Access.
- Once you have learned Access, start creating all of the tables, forms, queries, reports and code in Access.
- Copy your existing data by exporting all of the records in dBase and importing them into Access. You may need to do this several times during the project.
