importing dbf to accdr file
Views: 33
Not sure where to post, but trying to figure out a bug. I have db with a .accdr extension using access 2007 runtime. When I run a transferdatabase import of a dbf file it will not import. The function works if database has accde or accdb extension

Linking an access table to a DBF file

Preview
I have an access table which is empty, I need to link it to a DBF file which contains the data that should be in the table. The reason why I need to link is because the DBF file is updated every week and so I would want my table to be updated too. And the reason why I need the table is because I need to calculate a field which I need to join to in aquery - which I cannot do if I directly link the query to the DBF file - hence I am building this table as a interface between the query and DBF file which will calculate the field I need in the query.
 

How to work with .dbf file created by GIS

Preview
Trying to get some information from a .dbf file that comes from GIS I tried several things and came up blank, does anyone have any experience with this? I tried opening up this file with access and it says "The Microsoft Access database engine could not find the object 'CABZ_Lines.dbf'." so GIS uses a different format. I can open it in excel, not sure if that helps in any way
 

Create link table to .dbf that contains memo feald

Preview
I'm trying to link to .dbf table and I get "External table is not in the expected format.".
Original .dbf table designer says it's because it contains memo field that contains text.

I can't change/redesign table because its part of application that uses it as it is.
Importing table (to access or excel) works but particular field stays empty. Importing is also unacceptable because I need access to fresh data, all doe I have another purpose for it also.

Can this be helped?

At this point I'd be grateful if I could link it with memo field empted (like with import),
but it would be great if its data would be accessible to
 

Microsoft Office Access database engine could not find...

Preview
I've been using Lotus Approach and am trying to migrate to Access 2007. My primary database in Approach has two dbf tables. In Access I went to external data, and with no effort linked to one of them (I want links so I can use both Access and Approach).

When I try to do the exact same thing with the other dbf, I get a message that says "the Microsoft Office Access database engine could not find the object CDCompTitle.dbf" and to make sure it exists and is spelled correctly.

Since I clicked the browse button to get there it IS there and IS spelledcorrectly.

I've been searching online for a few days with no results. Several responses to others with this problem said the dbf file is corrupted. I took my dbf (which works with no problem in Approach) and exported to a new file and got the same results on the new file.
 

Visual Foxpro database Disappeared from ODBC

Preview
I am having a strange problem with one of my Access application.I have been using this application without any hurdles till last month.However last month I used the "compact and repair"option since I got an "Invalid Argument" pop up while importing a dbf file.Well the problem goes below;

After doing the compact and repair,the option "Visual foxpro database" which previously used to appear in the Machine Data tab vanished!I use this option for importing a dbf file (largesize) to access.The option is like
Open Access-> go to tables->Click New->Imort Table->ODBC Databases(Files of type)->Machine Data Source
Now the option "Visual foxpro database" is not appearing in the Machine Data Source tab without which I will not be able to import the dbf
I work in a Citrix environment and the access application is accessible only via that.The access version is Access 2000

My onsite counterpart tried to restore the access application to some oldest working version.In the morning when I tried to import the option "Visual Foxpro Database" was there.However wheni tried the same thing in the evening to the same application,that option disappeared.Strange!

I don't know how to import a dbf alternatively.
 

dbase dbf to excel to accdb then back to dbf

Preview
I am having quite an issue here, I have a dbf file which I opened and edited in excel (to shortcut editing by adding formulas) saved it and imported it to a table in MS Access 2010, when I export it back to dbf (dbaseI) it gives me an error "Field will not fit in record".

I have read that it has something to do with the length of the field so I edited field length from 255 down to 100. Still I am having the same error. What can I do with this?

Possible to Convert .DBF to .MDB ?

Preview
I'm transfering my Phone Contacts from my old phone to my new phone. The contacts exported as a .DBF file, and my new phone will only handle .MDB files.

I can import that .DBF file into Access just fine, but cannot figure out how to export (or "Save As"?) a .MDB. I've seen posts online involving "Tables" but I can barely navigate Access and no idea what 90% of all those buttons do.
 

Connect Foxpro table in access

Preview
I'm trying to connect Foxpro table ( .dbf) into Access as a link table.
I've done it many times before but this time it doesn't seem to work , and I don't know why.

You will see on the first printscreen of the attachment, When I configure my connection, I choose the directory of the table and I see all of them including dp.dbf and dpadd.dbf. Then when I click OK twice and now I see the screen to actually link my table (2nd printscreen). The tables dp.dbf and dpadd.dbf do not show anymore.

I'm using access 2007 but I tried it with access 2003 and 2000
Foxpro driver used is VFPODBC.msi. All the dbf seems to be the same
 

Export 2007 QRY to DBF

I have a query in Access 2007. In 2003 I was able to use this code to export the query results into a DBF.

Private Sub Command61_Click()
Dim access As access.Application
Set access = CurrentProject.Application
access.DoCmd.OpenQuery "MASTER DBF QUERY"
access.DoCmd.TransferDatabase acExport, "dBASE IV", "c:\", acTable, "MASTER DBF QUERY", "MASTER.DBF"
DoCmd.Close acQuery, "MASTER DBF QUERY"
End Sub

Now in 2007 it no longer works. Does anyone have
