WDConver : Overview
HFSQL ClassicAvailable only with this kind of connection


WDConver is a tool used to convert data to an HFSQL Classic data file from:
  • a Hyper File 5 or 4 file.
  • a text file.
  • an XML file.
  • a database accessed via an OLE DB provider or an ODBC driver (Excel, Access, Oracle, SQL Server, etc.).
  • a database accessed via a Native WINDEV Connector (SQL Server, Oracle or AS/400).
Caution: WDConver can only be used to convert data from a file. To perform this conversion, the structure of the data file must have been converted previously. To convert the structure of a data file, on the "Analysis" tab, in the "Creation" group, expand "Import" and select "Import file/table descriptions...".
Remark: Through 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.
