Database administrators often require dedicated database software packages to view or edit a DBF file. There are many options available, including Clipper, dBase, and FoxPro, each with its own price tag. Until recently, the only option was to purchase expensive dedicated database creation packages and spend time learning how to use them to work on different kinds of DBF databases. However, there is now an inexpensive and easy-to-use DBF Editor that can help with this task.
DBF Editor is a small utility that allows you to view and edit all types of DBF databases, regardless of the program used to create them. It supports Clipper, dBase, FoxBase, Foxpro, and Visual Foxpro. The program provides a range of tools and options, including the ability to view and sort records in a database by fields and use a query by example, wildcards, and expressions. The advanced features of DBF Editor enable you to edit records in a database easily and efficiently. You can also undo changes and restore deleted records.
The editor also has other useful features, such as the ability to edit memo fields in database files and convert databases to other formats. You can choose from a variety of formats to export, and the program does the conversion automatically. DBF Editor has a high-performance and it is compatible with all versions of Microsoft Windows.
You can use DBF Manager to work with DBase, Clipper, Foxpro, Visual Foxpro dbf file formats
DBF Manager has enjoyable and intuitive user interfaces, that makes it easy to use by both novice users and computer professionals.
You can easy add, rename, and delete fields in your dbf files by using table structure designer
The .cdx, .mdx, .ndx, .ntx index files contain and maintain pointers to records in the table (.dbf) file and is organized according to the index key values. An index file is separate from but associated with a .dbf file. So, you should open a .dbf file firstly and then associated index file(s) if needed.
Unlike .cdx/.mdx files that open automatically when the associated table is opened, you must open a .ndx/.ntx file explicitly using program's Index Manager dialog box (File->Index manager menu item).
Index files are only relevant for searching in the DBF - you really don't need them (i.e. you CAN read the .dbf data file without the index file). Removing the index file might break you application though.
You can limit the records that you access to only the data you want by using temporary filter condition. You can set a separate filter for every open table.
The business customers can use the visual report designer (with a complete set of layout and design controls), to design highly formatted, interactive, and professional looking reports. Reports can be exported and repurposed to the electronic formats used by most end users (e.g. PDF and Excel).
You can export dbf file data to dbf, sql, csv, txt, xls, html file formats.
Use built-in import wizard for importing data from xls, txt, csv, xlsx, xml, dbf file formats.
