    Foxpro?

    Hey I'm not sure but is Foxpro a database? I have seen some things about it on hosts site saying they support it. I found it on my computer (Microsof Visual Foxpro 6.0) But it doesnt seem like access. Can I use this?

    Yes, FoxPro is a database. I don't know about the specifics of the product interface itself, but you should be able to use straight SQL against it....

    I thought FoxPro was more development of programs. Its tied in with C++ and VB so I had assumed you might use it when creating some program and then compile it with your VB or C++.

    Not sure though.

    FoxPro is both a language and a database.

    Check out MSDN Visual FoxPro and Visual FoxPro on the Web to see what Visual FoxPro is. FoxPro was a derivitive of dBase. It's much more powerful than Access, but not as 'user friendly' either...requires a little more tech savvy.
