Export Your Database to Various Formats
Exportizer is a database export tool.
It is available in three editions (Exportizer, Exportizer Pro, Exportizer Enterprise), each of which has its own set of functionality. All the editions allow to browse, edit, and export data to file (supported target formats may vary depending on the edition), clipboard, or printer. Additionally, Exportizer Pro and Exportizer Enterprise can export data to a database.
(Every statement below belongs to all three editions, except where explicitly noted otherwise)
Supported source data types:
- Local file databases like Paradox (.db), dBase (.dbf), FoxPro (.dbf), text, CSV, or XML (with some limitations)
- ODBC data sources [Pro, Enterprise]
- Multi-table files like MS Excel (.xls, .xlsx, .xlsmb, .xlsm), HTML (.html, .htm) [Pro, Enterprise]
- Multi-table file databases like Visual FoxPro (.dbc), MS Access (.mdb, .accdb), Interbase (.gdb, .ib), Firebird (.fdb), SQLite [Enterprise]
- Databases specified by ADO connection strings [Enterprise]
- Oracle, SQL Server, Postgresql, DB2, Informix, Advantage Database Server, SQL Anywhere, MySQL databases [Enterprise]
Supported destination data types:
- File formats like text, CSV, JSON, XLS, RTF, XML, HTML, PDF, DBF, SLK, SQL script (with INSERT, UPDATE, MERGE, or DELETE statements)
- Additional file formats like XLSX [Pro, Enterprise]
- User defined file format based on user's formula
- ODBC data sources [Pro, Enterprise]
- Relational databases of any supported source type (see the list above) [Enterprise]
- Files of any types from database BLOB and CLOB columns (see below) [Pro, Enterprise]
For example, in Exportizer, you can export dbf to txt, csv to dbf, Paradox to xls, and make several other data conversions. Beside that, in Exportizer Pro or Exportizer Enterprise, it is possible to export DB2 to xlsx, SQLite to dBase, Access to HTML, Excel to Access, migrate Interbase to SQL Server, FDB to Excel, Oracle to PostgreSQL, and much more.
After opening the database, you can pick a table (or db view) to export data from. In addition, Exportizer Pro and Exportizer Enterprise have built-in SQL tool, which allows you to export the results of your own SQL queries.
Convenient Data View
Exportizer shows data in enhanced database grid, which allows to view and manipulate the data in the most convenient way. For example, it is possible to sort data by clicking column header, reorder and resize columns, increase row height to view large text or Blob images, use single record view mode etc.
Data Export Options
There is a large number of options you can utilize for different export formats. It is possible to save the often used export configurations to files and then load them whenever you need.
Export procedure can be configured to use detailed record logs, including log of erroneous records. Combined with error handling options, the logs give you the great opportunity to test, control, and debug your exporting process. The format of the logs is customizable.
Export Multiple Tables
With Exportizer Enterprise, it is possible to export multiple database tables during a single export operation.
By default, the tables are exported to destination as one-to-one.
For some destination formats (e.g. HTML, XLSX, or any relational database), it is possible to export several tables to one target file or table. [Enterprise]
Export Database Images and Blobs
This tool can automatically detect the most known image types (JPEG, PNG, GIF, BMP, ICO) in BLOB fields and export them, for example, to HTML or PDF. During the export, you can convert BLOB images to another image format. [Pro, Enterprise]
Generally, any BLOB/CLOB data can be exported into individual files, binary or text, within a single export step. For images, there is a possibility to change format (e.g. convert bitmaps from BLOBs into .png files) on the fly. [Pro, Enterprise]
Using Calculated Fields
There is an ability to specify the source-to-target field mappings for export session. In the source part of them, you can use either physical fields from the source database or your own calculated fields (i.e. dynamically calculated expressions, or formulas). [Pro, Enterprise]
For some export formats like HTML or Excel, every exported column can have its own totals. It can be sum, count, average value, some constant text, or any other expression. [Pro, Enterprise]
Export Data from Command Line
Any supported data export operation can be performed either via the program interface or from the command line. Using command line, you can automate your data export operations. The command line mode is also useful for developers, because it allows them to launch Exportizer from their own software.
Another great possibility is using action files. An action file contains a set of command line options to perform export operation. This is a flexible and convenient solution for export automation.
You can easily build basic command lines or action files directly from the GUI. For advanced users, there is a full specification in the documentation.
Both the command line and action file can include environment variables. This allows you to to reuse one command line or action file for different data sources and destinations.
In addition to detailed record logs, in command line and action file processing, you can operate with log of a higher level where main export events are registered.
