    I am a FoxPro developer and have been for many years. In the past few years people have asked if I could update data in various programs, and when I look at their data, it is in an MDB from an Access/VB program.

    Does anyone know of a program that will allow me to convert the MDB file to a DBF for editing in FP and then export back to MDB?

    Thank you.

    have you tried linking the access tables with ODBC? I know foxpro but have been out of the loop for a few months. Previously I have had Access tables linked for use in analysis in FP.

    the "copy to" command might have the properties to append to access but I am not sure

    also look at linking to foxpro from Access using odbc.
