This is just a suggestion... There is a shareware application called DBF Viewer Plus developed by Alex Nolan which I have used a couple of times. You can find it via Google search.

I was able to (1) import database tables into the viewer then (2) export them to CSV files. After being exported to the CSV file, I then (3) used Access to import the table into a new database.

This seems like a round-about way of doing things, but at least it resolved my problems. Maybe it will work for you as well. Good luck.


If you didn't get the answer you wanted to hear,

you were probably asking the wrong question.

Hello Jorge.

 

You could try exporting the table to some format that dBASE , then setting up the structure in dBASE and doing an import or append from file to get the data into your table. 

If it useless try DBF Fix Toolbox. It repairs corrupted dbf files containing databases of FoxPro,dBase and other applications.

 

Good luck.
