WDConver : Overview
HFSQLAvailable only with this kind of connection


WDConver is used to convert into a HFSQL Classic file the data found in a file:
  • in Hyper File 5 or 4 format.
  • in text format.
  • in XML format.
  • of a database accessed via an OLE DB provider or an ODBC driver (Excel, Access, Oracle, SQL Server, ...).
  • of a database accessed via a native WINDEV access (SQL Server, Oracle or AS/400).
Caution: WDConver can only be used to convert the data found in a file. To perform this conversion, the structure of the data file must be converted beforehand. To convert the structure of a data file, in the data model editor, on the "Analysis" pane, in the "Creation" group, expand "Import" and select "Import the descriptions of files/tables".
Remark: By programming, the imports can be performed by HImportHF55, HImportText, HImportXML, ...
Use example: After an important update of the data found in an external file, WDConnect is used to re-import the data into a WINDEV database.
