Access vs FoxPro

Access vs FoxPro

Access vs FoxPro

I'm an avid Access user as well as programmer.  I've noticed Microsoft peddles another db product, FoxPro.  What advantages, if any, does it hold over Access?

RE: Access vs FoxPro

Fox has the fastest db engine out there.  Also Fox is fully Object Oriented.  You can create and distribute fully functional executables, with no additional software.  I'm sure there are more advantages, but those are the three biggies that come to mind.  I've used both Access and FoxPro for a number of years now and definitely prefer VFP.  

RE: Access vs FoxPro

So another words, Access is a piece of crap lol

RE: Access vs FoxPro

I refrain from saying "ditto" Omega36. However, your responses in the  Microsoft: Visual FoxPro (versions 3.0 and higher) Forum indicate that each has its place.   BTW, I'm in desperate need of a door stopper.

If you printed all of your stupid posts and then piled them up in front of your door, you'd have an excellent door stopper.
