Is your FoxPro database showing it’s age? Can’t run FoxPro on Windows 7 or Windows 10? Having trouble finding someone to help you maintain the database? Consider moving your FoxPro database to Microsoft Access!
Why Access may be your best option
Access is uniquely poised to take your FoxPro system and turbo charge it for a much better user experience. Moving data from FoxPro to Access can be quite challenging since you will need to redo all the forms, queries, reports and code. It can be lots of work if you have a very complex FoxPro database.
Use these techniques to convert your FoxPro to Access
- First, learn how to create Access tables, forms, queries and reports, since you will need to recreate all of your FoxPro objects in Access
- Once you have learned Access, start creating all of the tables, forms, queries, reports and code in Access.
- Copy your existing data by exporting all of the records in FoxPro and importing them into Access. You may need to do this several times during the project.
Does this sound daunting? It can be
How daunting will depend on the complexity of your FoxPro database and your knowledge of Access, but once you have completed the project you will LOVE the ease of use and achieve the following benefits:
- Email from Access.
