How Convert old DBFs into Interbase

How can I convert my old files (.DBF) into InterBase.
I want to make a lot of tests before beginning my definitively project. Today i use Clipper 5.3b
Thank You

RE: How Convert old DBFs into Interbase

Mr Pontello, scale your dbf files op with the datapump utility which comes with Delphi. Maybe you have to rearrange some of the properties by yourself, but at least the data, keys and indexes will be transported automatically.
But before you do this look into Interbase domains. These are very powerful when you need a certain type of fields in more than one table. Unfortunately altering a domain afterwards, results in dropping (temporary) the related fields.

i agree with SVANELS...

interbase has a reserved words so be sure that the fieldnames of your olddatas would not be on interbase reserved words list or else you'll end up like me!!!
