    Excel 2007 and DBF

    HI

    Microsoft disabled the save as feature for this file format.

    Try a comnpany called Whitetown Software, they have a converter for XLS to DBF (www.whitetown.com)

    Hope that this is of some use to you.

    regards

    Jeff

    Excel 2007 DBF Issue Workaround

    Hi,

    My company Target Websites www.targetwebsites.co.uk recently started using Goldmine and had this problem that to import into Goldmine you need to save a XLS as a DBF. However, there IS a work around within Office 2007.

    - In Excel 2007, Go to "file > Save As.." and choose .csv

    - Now open Access 2007 and Choose import data and select the csv file

    - The data then loads into a table and from there you can export the data from Access into a DBF file! Choosing either DBF3, DBF4, DBF5

    Hope this helps everyone!

    re: Save as DBF

    XLSX2DBF is an Excel 2007 add-in that helps convert and/or save a native DBF file that was edited with Excel 2007.

    Two common scenarios are supported:

    A) Open a native DBF file in Excel 2007 Make changes Save as a native DBF file with the changes.

    B) Open/create an Excel file that looks like a database (headers/columns/rows) Save as a native DBF file.

    The add-in is free, but donations are appreciated.

    re: Save as DBF

    Hi there,

    just wanted to let you know that I released a new version of the add-
    in that enables saving a DBF file in Excel 2007.

    New features:

    1. Now you can add/insert new fields, create calculated fields in
    addition to adding new records or editing existing records in your
    native DBF file!

    2. If you start with an Excel file the software now have enhanced
    capabilities to determine the field types (better than Microsoft's own
    in earlier Excel versions).

    3. The add-in checks DBase field naming conventions and also
    identifies duplicate fields. All problem field names are visually
    identified with a cell comment!

    4. If you start out with a brand new file and forget to save it, the
    add-in will ask before the conversion.

    5. Large files are supported. I edited files over 500,000 records with
    no problem.

    See the post at http://thexlwiz.blogspot.com/.
