Use this window to make database tables available to the database configuration utility.

File-Based Databases

File DBs. This menu let's you connect to file-based databases. The menu has items for the following database types:

  • dBase tables (*.dbf).
  • MS Access databases (*.mdb).
  • MS Excel spreadsheets (*.xls)
  • MS Data Link File (*.udl)
  • Data Source Name files (*.dsn)
