Excel to DBF

I have not used Foxpro for several years and a friend has asked me a question that I don't recall for sure. He is trying to use Foxpro exclusively to convert an excel file to DBF. In the past, they have used Access as an interim but are trying to get away from that for a few reasons. If my memory is correct, it is difficult to convert an excel file to DBF without a program.

It is used in dBASE II as a file format. Also, it has been employed in the proceeding versions of dBASE III, III+, and IV. DBF file is one of the earliest database files having a header. The header makes the program not familiar with the data structure read DBF file. However, it can be used on Microsoft Excel OpenOffice Calc, and some other. Try Excel DbfMate Add-In. It allows importing data from DBF files directly to worksheet, and exporting data from worksheets to DBF files using either GUI or VBA. Handles character encoding. Supported Excel versions: 2007 to 2013. Supported DBF formats: dBase III, VFP, dBase IV (import only). A demo is also available on Softpedia. With DBF Viewer 2000 you can export dbf to Excel (XLS, XLSX) from GUI or from the command line. To export a dbf file to XLS (Excel) format, open File Save as/Export menu, and select file type: XLS or XLSX (Excel 2003-2019). 'Export DBF to XLS' dialog box opens. Select the fields to be exported and specify their order using up and down arrows.

Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance, see his email question below in bold/italic:
Our plan is to generate an excel file and use FOXPRO simply to convert the excel file to a DBF. We can use ACCESSDB to save it as a DBF but hard to keep the table properties same as the original dbf we are used to sending to fiscals.
