You can open FoxPro files (.dbf) in Exportizer using these ways:

1. Opening through ODBC DSN (interface: ADO or BDE). Select ODBC data source option and then select the ODBC DSN from the drop-down list. But first, you should create an ODBC DSN of the corresponding type using Windows administrative tools and point it to the folder with .dbf files.

2. Opening by specifying file name (interface: ADO or BDE). Select File option and then browse for the needed file.

3. Opening by specifying folder name (interface: BDE). Select Folder option, select a driver from the drop-down list, and then browse for the folder with .dbf files.

4. Opening through connection string (interface: ADO). Select Connection string option and write a connection string. This way is the most flexible one because it allows to specify many additional parameters in the connection string and override standard Exportizer connection behavior. But it is recommended basically for advanced users. Here are basic connection strings (more examples and details can be found in the Internet):

Provider=VFPOLEDB.1;Data Source=D:\MyFoxProFolder;Collating Sequence=MACHINE   (VFP OLE DB Provider must be installed)

Provider=vfpoledb;Data Source=C:\MyFoxProFolder\MyTable.dbf;Collating Sequence=machine   (VFP OLE DB Provider must be installed)
