    • Conversion engine rewritten so that .NET framework is no longer required. This considerably reduces installation size and memory consumption, improves conversion speed and user interface responsiveness.
    • Handling of huge databases is taken to the next level using advanced algorithm for partial data loading. Now memory consumption is low and constant, so you can convert hundreds of GB without touching any options. Converting of huge databases is now very fast as database server isn't burdened with calculating chunk positions so you typically won't even notice that tables are read in chunks during conversion.
    • Added handling of user erroneously opening a database file using Open Project button. Full Convert will now recognize the file type and start a new conversion wizard with the opened file as a source.
    • Added support for Excel 2007 files as a target. For each project, choose whether you want Excel97 or Excel2007 output.
    • Excel doesn't have to be installed as we use native Excel read/write components for maximum speed and reliability.
    • Table Settings dialog now notifies that filter is not available for non-relational source databases
    • Improved handling of TEXT target database. Full Convert now uses very little memory (and a constant amount) as output text is streamed directly to file and we take advantage of our advanced partial data loading algorithm.
    • When you open data in grid, it will now by default be best-fitted for optimal display if table has up to 5.000 records. This behavior can be changed in the Options dialog.
    • SQL Server Compact Edition database maximum size increased to 4GB
    • Added a fast SQL Server detection. It will only detect local SQL Server instances to avoid lag, and Server field will be filled right away with the first instance detected.
    • By default, from now on MySQL target uses database default for table engine (i.e. Full Convert will not specify it). It's still overridable in Options.
    • Added NDBCLUSTER table engine for MySQL target
    • If you specify MySQL database which doesn't exist as a target, Full Convert will ask if you wish it to create it for you automatically.
    • Added support for SQL_VARIANT SQL Server data type. When you convert it to other database engines, we copy it as a BLOB.
    • Added option to generate sqlplus compatible output for Oracle target
    • Added support for multiple double-quotes in CSV text files. For example: "This is ""quoted"" inside a string by specifying each quote twice" now parses properly.
    • Added option to reconnect to both source and target database on each conversion and reread the metadata if you want to make sure you have the latest info.
    • Improved progress dialog. You can now instantly cancel long-running Oracle direct-load transfers. Also, visual clue added when slow parameterized mode is used due to BLOB data in table.
    • Added 'Test Filter' button in Table Settings. Use it to see how many records your custom source table filter selects.
    • Modified Postgres database table parsing so that only the tables in the current schema are visible
    • All Interbase/Firebird user-defined BLOB types are now handled. User-defined types are handled as SUB_TYPE 0.

    • Added support for SQL Server XML datatype
    • Increased timeout for command execution in most targets to get rid of timeouts for long index creation
    • Improved performance of connecting to SQL Server and listing its tables
    • Improved handling of very large custom user SQL scripts so that scripts sized hundreds of MB use a minimum of RAM
    • Set default write batch records to 200 as this proved optimal for most target databases.
    • We no more convert dates on each SQL insert to Oracle target. We rather change the session NLS_DATE_FORMAT and NLS_TIMESTAMP_FORMAT variables.
    • Auto-creating Access database will now use your default database folder instead of Desktop, if you have specified the folder in the options dialog.
    • Fixed calculating numeric size from DBF source. DBF defines size excluding decimals, while modern databases define it including decimals. These causes occasional numeric overflows during conversion.
    • Fixed trial version issue with SQL Server target where trial watermark can cause string truncation error
    • Fixed handling of tables with percent-sign in the name
    • Fixed handling of table and column names starting with a number for Interbase/Firebird target

    December 19, 2008
    • Read large table in chunks is now supported in Firebird source (but not Interbase)
    • Added Force columns in primary key NOT NULL option for SQL Server target. This is default behavior, as SQL Server requires all PK columns to be NOT NULL. If your data contains NULL values in columns which are part of PK, you can disable this option to have all data converted.
    • Added automatic handling of certain invalid DBF data when encountered
    • Implemented memory optimizations when unpacking large (hundred MB in size) SQL scripts from file for automated execution before or after conversion

    • You can now open saved project even if an error occurs loading a saved project (for example, when database doesn't exist anymore or server IP changed). Project Settings are opened automatically so you can correct invalid information.
    • Simplified automatic character set conversion. It is now enabled by default and doesn't need a target character set to function, as we support Unicode data.
    • Added custom character set definiton to MySQL options. This is useful, for example, for utf8 data.
    • Added WITH NOCHECK option for primary key creation of SQL Server target
    • Fixed execution of custom long Oracle scripts in Run Before/After Conversion
    • Fixed case where Interbase/Firebird text blob fields were converted as garbage

  • Full Convert 4.2 released
    October 3, 2008
    • Full Convert will no more empty target column definitions in Table Settings when you choose Recreate/Append Data mode. This way you can create project even if you plan to deploy target database structure later.

    • Added support to consecutively run several files inside of the ZIP archive as external scripts. You can even specify file masks!
    • Project customization expanded and moved to separate dialogue
    • Completely rewritten Excel support. It is now faster, much more reliable and doesn't even require Excel to be installed.
    • We have temporarily disabled MySQL LOAD DATA feature due to bugs in the MySQL implementation regarding Unicode data. As MySQL inserts are very fast anyway, this is not really a burning issue.
    • Auto-refreshing scheduled tasks can now be disabled in the Scheduler
    • dbo Schema in SQL Server source is no more explicitly defined in target to avoid cluttering table names with unnecessary prefixes. Other schemas are copied.
    • Conversion will now drop related foreign keys prior to dropping a table in SQL Server target
    • Fixed handling of text data type for SQL Server 2000
    • Fixed handling of varchar(max), nvarchar(max) and varbinary(max) data types in global override of data types in Options

    • Added Unicode support! Full Convert can now handle all those umlauts, Chinese, Japanese, Hebrew and Arabic letters with ease!
    • Added Excel as a conversion target - you can write a whole bunch of Excel documents (one for each table) or stuff all tables as sheets in a single Excel document
    • Added ability to run custom user SQL scripts before and after each conversion. You can also specify external files (even ZIP files) to be read, unpacked and executed.
    • Added in-place edit feature into the data grid. No more need to go to other tools to modify your converted data.
    • Added datatype mapping on a global level as well and set-up rules used for all conversions.
    • Added improved error reporting. You can now send a bug report from any error message to seek for help - this is great for managing database setup
    • Added tips into error messages. For the common problems Full Convert will suggest actions to resolve the issue.
    • Added display of progress when Full Convert is called via command-line and immediate close switch is not specified

    • Added per-session options. You can now choose to convert schema only, append data, skip indexes etc. without setting this up for all tables separately at the Table Setting dialog. Enterprise only.
    • Reading tables in chunks is now off by default in Enterprise. This maximizes speed, and users who convert huge databases can always turn this on to avoid big memory load.
    • Added ability to apply prefix to indexes and constraints, not only to tables. This is handy when loading several copies of the database into the same target database.
    • Added support for BCD datatype in Paradox
    • Added auto-refresh every 3 seconds in the Scheduler task list

    • Added support for Oracle ROWID datatype
    • Added trimming of trailing spaces in the DBF source strings
    • Full Convert now adds size to index column when target database is MySQL and column in question is BLOB. This can happen when source VARCHAR results with target TEXT datatype for example. Size is customizable in Options dialog.
    • Oracle target now uses standard inserts with append hint as default. You can enable internal fast loader in Options dialog.
    • Oracle and Interbase/Firebird target schemas are by default now created as case-insensitive. This overrides name transforms settings in Options, unless it is set to case-sensitive, in which case global options are applied.
    • Saving log files now prompts whether to overwrite if the file already exists
    • Fixed occasional failure to override blanks in not-null fields when Oracle direct loader is used
