How to Import Data into a DataEase Table

DataEase lets you import data from other versions of DataEase and from other DOS and Windows programs, such as Lotus 1-2-3 and dBASE. You can import data into any database table that has columns defined to match the size and data type of the incoming data:

 

1- Choose File>>Import. DataEase displays the “Import Data” dialog;

2- Choose the Destination table, then choose the Import file format;

3- Specify the path and filename of the source file;

If the source file is stored in the application directory, you don’t need to specify a path. You can click Browse to search for the source file.
4- Specify whether the source data is organized by Field Name or Field Order;
If the source file includes field names in the first record, accept Field Name (the default). If the first record contains data values, select Field Order. When you import records organized by Field Order, fields in the source file must appear in the same sequence as in the destination table.

5- Specify which characters are used as field and record separators (for Variable Length Text format only).
To specify the character used to separate fields or records, choose the appropriate character from the Field Separator or Record Separator drop-down list in the “Import Data” dialog. If the appropriate character does not appear on the list, select Other, then type the character in the entry box.6. Click Run. DataEase closes the “Import Data” dialog, imports the records, and displays the progress of the import in the Status Bar.

 

Note: Once you click Run, you cannot cancel or abort an import.
