Subject Re: [IBO] Converting tables structure from Dbf to FB
Author Chuck Belanger
Besides the Clevercomponent datapump, I also use the OD Datapump. Too often, the
OD Datapump will work when the Clevercomponent does not. So I have and use both.
Clearly the Clevercomponent is easier to use.

Make sure you set up the BDE for the table (which I forget to do a lot).

I came from FoxPro so initially did a lot of DBF to FB conversions. Now I'm
pretty much working with FB exclusively.
