flatfile conversion


I have a .dbf file and need to convert into into an IData doc.
Can i directly build a dictionary, flat file schema and use convertToValues to convert into an IData doc structure?. (Provided i have the file structure)


yes you can. Check out the flat file user guide and samples to get started.

Hi Mark,
But the dbf file is a binary one and not ascii.


Is this some sort of dBase or Foxpro file? You are going to probably need to convert it or do an extract to a flat file in order for webMethods IS to be able to read it.

I would suspect the db system that generated the .dbf file would be able to do that. Export what you are interested in into a some delimitted file format and then webMethods IS can take care of it.
