The program I mentioned earlier: http://sourceforge.net/projects/dbfsak is designed to dump out the contents of a DBF into a form that can be imported into MySQL or PostgreSQL. That's part of what I use it for. (No, I don't make any money off the program. I wrote it for my own use and put it up on sourceforge years ago in case someone could use it.) Paul -- Paul M.
