Based on your dbf data dump it would seem to be Visual FoxPro. How do I confirm what files are really Visual FoxPro? We bought Delphi with the understanding that the Borland Database Engine was read-write capable middleware for all database platforms. Or they can be free-standing. Am I to understand from the information emailed to me from the Borland site that Windows 98 1. An initial connection string looks as follows:

An initial connection string looks as follows: I’d like to examine what data stored there and use or extract any useful stuff.
Have you tried using excel to open one of your. It seems pathetic the the problem has no clear solution.
We bought Delphi with the understanding that the Borland Database Engine was read-write capable middleware for all database platforms. Read only access to FoxPro is recommended. And finally, how to use something modern to access tables and start examining data?
Anyway, where did this “understanding” that the BDE would be fox-compatible come from? Lars 1, 10 Quickest check is to open the.
Alan B, from what I piece together the field descriptor should start at byte offset 32 which seems to be the case above. You should be able to use a OBDC link with little change to your source structure and I would recommend that as FoxPro support is not entirly bug-free. The BDE has problems, Our company has used a Foxpro Database system for some time and using anything other than ODBC access to the tables results foxpo Table open problems due to FoxPro index foxproo problems and I have no faith in it from a write perspective Based on your dbf data dump it would seem to be Visual FoxPro.
I’m looking at where the field descriptors start there, and to me that’s wrong for DBF, they should come later. CSV or tab-delimited file and you should be able to import it into whatever system you want.

Fox;ro, also if you want this site: You can call a dos program and wait for it to be finished. Therefore, we recommend read only use of the FoxPro driver at this time.
Why not address the problem and try to solve it as most software companies do MS,Oracle.
I own a software company that has spent the past year re-writing our application in Delphi 5 Enterprise and we use the native Foxpro driver in BDE.
Not to mention the time critical nature of the need for the conversion utility. Free Consulting 3, 1 22 Borland just wimps out and leaves me with hours on top of hours troubleshooting an application that is not in a useable form now. From the first glance into DBF file, it looks like it has field descriptors there.
I’m throwing it in anyway:
