Export capabilities of SBT 5.0i?

Export capabilities of SBT 5.0i?

Export capabilities of SBT 5.0i?

Hello - I have a client that has SBT 5.0i and is not looking to upgrade versions.  We have a need to export 2 of the tables on a nightly basis and I need to find out if that is possible.  And if it possible, can it be done automatically through a feature in SBT.  I'd be looking to export it to a comma separated file.  

Thanks for any and all insight


RE: Export capabilities of SBT 5.0i?

You are going to need Visual fox pro and create a small program (.prg) to copy the relevant tables. Then use the task scheduler with the command: D:\vfp\vfp5.exe X:\FOLDER\PROGRAM_NAME.prg

Depending on how you look at it SBT/ACCPAC PRO 5.0 has the best export facilities available or the worst.  It uses FoxPro tables and provides a very nice data dictionary.  That means you can export or import almost anything.  The problem is you need to know a programming language to do it.  Or you can hire someone like me to write you an export front end.
