People who know foxpro and have a ready copy of foxpro.

Access comes with my Office, so I learn it and use it.

Why not.

If you have a job in mind, why don't you just state what you want to do and
let people discuss what's best for that particular job?

FoxPro vs Access is like HP calculator vs Casio calculator I believe. You
can make do with either if you are smart enough.

Access and Visual FoxPro are both databases, both produced and sold by
Microsoft. Access has a very visual interface and is suitable for use by
both end-users and developers; VFP can be effectively used only by writing
code (it has its own code language) and is, thus, really usable only by
developers. Most of the VFP developers I know have used it since before
Windows and continue to use it because they like it, it is capable, and is a
good performer. None of the Access developers I know used it before Windows,
because it has always been a Windows-only product, but they use it because
they like it, it is capable, and is a good performer with great
"connectivity" to other desktop database data and to server data.

You'll find the manufacturer's descriptions of both at
http://www.microsoft.com and much technical information at
http://msdn.microsoft.com.

Please ignore the above posting and others which are somewhat bizarre.

Note to persons new to this newsgroup. One person, with many identities, is

Your postings have been quite decent and helpful.

XMVP is the problem not the answer.

Check the headers of the posting. If you see the following the posting likely can be
ignored. Of course, there will likely be other headers to be added to this list.
