    Post Unanswered: Informix to ASCII

    I'm trying to dump an entire Informix 5 database to ASCII or dbf files for conversion. What is the easiest method for doing this? Can this be done from the dbaccess utility?

    Help!!!!

    Hi,
    you can try dbexport for the whole database, or dbaccess with the sql unload to file select * from table.

    OK thanks. will the dbexport disturb the current database? Is it more of a copy or will it detach and move the database?

    dbexport will place an exclusive lock on the entire database while exporting.
