hi,

I have this existing tables in dbf format. How could I import it to lianja so that I can use/access it without creating the tables again?

I tried to copy it on the lianja\data folder but upon opening lianja app builder, it is not found on the data work place.

Any idea on this? Thanks a lot.

Drag and drop them in the data workspace. They will automatically be converted to Lianja format and added to the active database.

Thats the easiest way, there are others.

is that the same with the existing triggers? I'll just have to drag and drop it to the current db or copy it?

thanks

No the VFP database/table import does not import triggers. You have to create them using the ALTER TABLE command and place the trigger code in the database container directory.
