Migrating Fox (dbf) to PostgreSQL

Hi Folks.

I need some tutorial or some expertice about the subject. Because, i'm
have a customer, need's change the actual appl, but the only issue is
a dbf database, and the GUI is the older blue screen. You know, it's
very old and huge data to migrating.

Well, the challenge for me now, it's create the structure and change
thhe interface, well, is the same menu, but other screen for the user.
i'm always like for backend the postgresql, is for this, i'm proposse
to migrating posgresql.
resume: i'm need tips, task, tutorial's, tools and some help for you,
or some manual, because i'm like change the actual backend to
posgresql.......
Thanks

Postgresql includes an utility called dbf2pg, you can use it to upload
the current Fox data to pg, be carefully to "clean" the dbf tables prior
upload, you will need to pack them and replace missing date values with
some value.
