Version 24.2.8969


You can use the xBase connector from the CData Sync application to capture data from xBase and move it to any supported destination. To do so, you need to add the connector, authenticate to the connector, and complete your connection.

Establish a Connection

To allow Sync to use data from xBase, you first must establish a connection to xBase. Follow these steps to connect xBase to your Sync account:

  1. Open the Connections page of the Sync dashboard.

  2. Click Add Connection to open the Select Connectors page.

  3. Click the Sources tab and locate the xBase row.

  4. Click the Configure Connection icon at the end of that row. If you do not see the Configure Connection icon, you need to add the connector according to the instructions in Connections.

  5. Enter connection settings on the Settings tab:

    • Connection Name - Enter a connection name of your choice.

    • Data Source - Enter the path to the folder that contains your DBF files.

      Note: If you do not enter a path, CData Sync assigns a reference to the current directory (./) automatically.

  6. Click Create & Test to create the connection.

  7. Define advanced connection settings on the Advanced tab. (In most cases, though, you should not need these settings.)
