DBArtisan でxBase Data に連携

DBArtisan のウィザードを使って、xBase data をデータソースとして連携利用。

CData ODBC Driver for xBase は、DBArtisan などのデータベースツールとxBase data を連携し、RDB のような感覚でxBase データを扱えます。 本記事では、DBArtisan 上でxBase データソースを作成する方法とクエリの実行方法を説明します。

DBArtisan Project にxBase Data を連携する

If you have not already, first specify connection properties in an ODBC DSN (data source name). This is the last step of the driver installation. You can use the Microsoft ODBC Data Source Administrator to create and configure ODBC DSNs.

The DataSource property must be set to the name of the folder that contains the .dbf files. Specify the IncludeFiles property to work with xBase table files having extensions that differ from .dbf. Specify multiple extensions in a comma-separated list.

You can then follow the steps below to register xBase data as a database instance in your project:

  1. In DBArtisan, click Data Source -> Register Datasource.
  2. Select Generic ODBC.
  3. Enter a name for the data source and select the DSN.
  4. Finish the wizard to connect to xBase data. xBase entities are displayed in the Datasource Explorer.

You can now work with xBase data as you work with any other database. See the driver help documentation for more information on the queries supported by the xBase API.
