Your current code is caused to fail by the next inputs: - when the data has null number values.
You can probe it with the examples in: http://www.clicketyclick.dk/databases/xbase/index.shtml.en Now I have a new version of dbf2sql with some bug fixed: - Support MEMO fields. - Support Float Point fields. - Exclude deleted records. - Replace ' with \' in strings. - do all inserts in one transaction. And my script support all examples of above url. My program fixes that the current one does not.
