Is it possible to use another DBMS package to access FoxPro 5.0 tables? I have some tables that are used by the accounting program SBT. (Now ACCPAC). Due to an error, there are some fields that are bad. I have written and tested the view and update statements in SQL I need to use to fix the tables. Since the full version of FoxPro is not loaded at the customer site - it will not let me build the views. I have SQL server7, ORACLE8, Informix, Sybase, IBM DB2 that I can load and use. The tables are free-standing Foxpro 5.0 tables (there is no "database" that is being used with this application.) The SBT support people say I am way over their head. I would appreciate any ideas. Another help would be if you know of a down-loadable copy of FoxPro that I could use for just a day or so - an evaluation copy, etc..?? Or an evaluation CD I could order. I don't want to buy the thing just for this.
