How can you run a Visual Foxpro 5.0 report from another application?

RE: how can you print a visual foxpro 5.0 report from another application?

It's not clear what other applications you are refering to. Is the other application a program you're writing in Visual Basic or something like MS Word?

You might examine the VFP Developer's Guide and explore the possibility of building a VFP service that could be called from other apps.

Another possibility would be to compile the report generator as a DLL and call it from the other program.

Another possibility is to put a VBasic wrapper around your VFP and create an ActiveX (COM) control. This assumes you other application is a programming language that accepts ActiveX controls.

None of these is a cinch but it can be done. Start with the VFP Developer's Guide for inspiration.

Using Automation you can create a Visual FoxPro Application Variable and then use the DoCmd verb to execute any Visual FoxPro Command. I have never tested.

I hope it helps
