Which version of FoxPro (PC) is compatible with FoxPro 3.0(Macintosh)

Which version of FoxPro (PC) is compatible with FoxPro 3.0(Macintosh)

(OP)
I need some advice on which version of FoxPro for the PC I should obtain in order to be compatible with FoxPro 3.0 for the Macintosh.

I plan to use FoxPro as a front-end to SQL Server 7.0. My clients are mainly Macintosh users and some PC users.

Visual FoxPro version 3.0 is available on the Macintosh platform. My question is, do I need to get hold of version 3.0 of FoxPro on the PC platform in order to be able to implement solutions without modifications on either platform?

RE: Which version of FoxPro (PC) is compatible with FoxPro 3.0(Macintosh)

Even in VFP 3.0 you would have to worry about some platform stipulations (most notably in some of the reports, at least I had issues with 'WINDOWS' being stored in the platform field and giving some problems when adding or removing fields subsequently.)
