How to delete records from FoxPro 2.6 tables Using ODBC-Please help me

1511 (IS/IT--Management) (OP)

I want to write an application in MSAccess 2000 with which I want to delete unused data from FoxPro 2.6a tables.

I have:
os:        window 2000,
MsAccess:  version 2000,
ODBC-Drivers   : MS Visual FoxPro Drivers (ver:6.01.XXXX)

I link the tables with ODBC and want to run a query but it doesnt work. Now i know that i don't/can't have Exclusive access to FoxPro 2.6a tables.

I want to know is it possible anyway to update foxpro 2.6 tables using ASP or MSAccess?

Deleting isn't really a problem, however PACKing the data can be troublesome. See http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;234756 - "HOWTO: Pack a Table Through the Visual FoxPro ODBC Driver (VFPODBC.dll)" for some sample code.
