How to Migrate from Access

Postby Blair » Fri Sep 28, 2007 1:21 pm

Incidentally, we can migrate tables and data from Access also.

I have an Access 2003 database (CoreData.mdb) containing customer records and I need to bring all this data into a new (empty) Customers form in my Ffenics application. How do I go about migrating the tables and data?

Having tried to run the ffmigrate.exe on the Access database, it only shows me an empty source folder where there is a copy of the Access app.

Hopefully, once migrated, I can then use 'Import' to get the data into the empty (Ffenics) Customers form.

Hi Blair

It's a different technique, it doesn't use the migration tool. Trina used the technique with one of our other early customers (he's also running his Ff app live already) - I'll ask her if she can post an outline of the method here. (in a separate thread)
