FoxPro DBF Table Into MySQL Table C# RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm attempting to select the columns I want from a FoxPro DBF table and insert them into a MySQL table, preferably (if possible) creating the SQL Table on the fly from the columns I've chosen.

    I've had a look and I unserstand this is probably going to be built around the SQL Statement `"SELECT INTO FROM"` but I'm unsure how I would do this, especially programatically within C# and especially scenes as I'm going from DBF to MySQL, not MySQL to MySQL.

    Can someone advise on how I would do this within C#? I already have an OleDB Connection setup as such;

     public void runDbfCmd()
            string constr = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["dbfString"].ConnectionString;
            using (OleDbConnection dbfCon = new OleDbConnection(constr))
                    OleDbCommand dbfCmd = new OleDbCommand("SELECT INTO STATEMENT HERE");
                catch (OleDbException ex)
                    throw ex;

    As you can see I'm stuck on how to build the command and whether or not this will work how I would like it to.
