There are times when a database administrator has to work with DBF databases created in many different applications such as Clipper, dBase, FoxBase, Foxpro. For all the functionalities each of them provides, none of them can be considered as a universal tool that can be used to view and modify databases created in other packages. Purchasing all these applications comes with an impressive price that not everyone is ready to pay. Knowing this, developers from Hi Base Group made an amazingly powerful and affordable tool called Advanced DBF Editor.
DBF Editor from http://www.dbf-edit.com is a editor specifically designed to view and modify DBF databases created in all popular database applications. When I say popular, I am referring to Clipper, dBase III/IV, FoxBase, Foxpro, Visual Foxpro. The editor provides you a powerful arsenal of tools and options of an advanced database application but, unlike its bigger brothers, it has faster performance. By adopting Advanced DBF Editors, you get everything you need to deal with various DBF databases without problems.
Using Advanced DBF Editor, you can, for example, view records and memos in DBF databases with just a few mouse clicks. To make a few small edits, you only need to double-click the needed records and key in your own values to the fields in the record editing dialog that appears. You do editing on the fly as your view a database, and there is no need to run another database application for making a few quick edits. If you have a large database, you can still quickly find a record you want by using a simple search, query, or filtering. What’s more, the editor can also help you to search and replace particular values in fields with the new ones automatically, add new records to the database, find and delete duplicates that may often be found within a large database.
Besides viewing and modifying, the program can help you to convert a database to new database formats without the need to install extra database software. Let’s say, for example, you need to email a database to your co-worker who wants you to export it to Excel XLS as he does not have a proper application to open DBF. You can open the database in Advanced DBF Editor, select XLS in the Export dialog and export as needed. What’s more, you can export a database to other formats such as DBF, TXT, CSV, HTML, XML, PRG, SQL, RTF.
Some companies buy several different database applications to view, modify, or export various DBF databases. This may cost a lot. Now you have a chance to save money and get the functionality of all these tools in a single universal database tool that will not burn holes in your pockets when you buy it.
