Change Visual Foxpro data type in VB

I have a need to change the data type on specific fields when i open a Visual Foxpro DB in Visual Basic. I am using the following as a test select string:

select distinct cast(numeric_field as Char(30)),another_field from database_table

This errors out as unrecognized Visual Foxpro, where am I going wrong please?

RE: Change Visual Foxpro data type in VB

I'm not sure that is recognized by VFP but to be sure, goto the VFP forum and ask. I'm sure the people over there will be able to help...

Good Luck
