Hey @supu123

Could you please show or attach a dbf file here to check ?


How many data items / rows are there on dbf file?

You’ll need to read the data into datatable variables and then write it back out to CSV.

What activity will I use to read the dbf fie and store it in databale


File is around 300mb so cannot be attached

Excel can read dbf files, so open it in Excel, save it as an Excel file, then use the Excel activities to read it.

Hey @supu123

Did you try with Read Excel or CSV activity and Write again back using UiPath ?

Also, please show a small snap of how dbf file data looks like…


Hi @Nithinkrishna

while using read csv or excel getting an error

“Read CSV: The CSV file format for C:\Users\Venkatesh Yenaganti\Desktop\ICICI\file2 - Copy.DBF is invalid. Line 3 contains more values than the header line.”

Hello @supu123

Can you make a dummy copy of dbf file which of small size and attach here.

Else can you share a screenshot of the file here. Need to see how the file looks

Hi @Rahul_Unnikrishnan

Thanks and Regards,

Excel only supports max 1,048,576 rows which might explain why data after 10 lakhs is missing.
