Paradox to Progress migration steps

When we start Full Convert, you will notice a welcome panel with links for common tasks. Let's start a new project.

  • 1) Connect to your source database
  • 2) Connect to your target database
  • 3) Optional: Choose which tables you want to convert
  • 4) Start the conversion

Welcome screen

Connection to Paradox

List on the left shows all the databases which can be filled with your source database data. Select the one you need and fill-in required parameters.

We will choose Paradox from the list of available database formats. Paradox database does not need to be installed to be able to convert your Paradox files. However, currently Full Convert does not support encrypted Paradox tables, so if you have such protected tables, you will need to decrypt them using Paradox database application before running the conversion.

Just type-in the folder containing your Paradox documents, or click the ellipsis button on the right and Full Convert will display Browse for Folder dialog.

Connection to Progress

List on the left shows all the databases which can be filled with your source database data. Select the one you need and fill-in required parameters.

Table selection

We will select all source tables for conversion by default. In case you only need some tables, simply deselect the ones you don't need - or deselect all, then select just the tables you do need.

Conversion
